You will have to apply to be invited to this program. Customers who are finally invited will be able to give feedback via two methods. They can do so through surveys and automatically by installing a special client on their PC, which will collect and send data about your Windows 8.

Those who participate for more than 4 months will be eligible for free software and Xbox games like Microsoft Office 2010, Kinect Disneyland, and Forza Motorsport 4.

Go here to sign up. You will be greated with a Vista-ish interface – pointing out to the fact the program is not exactly new – Microsoft has only felt the need to ask for feedback about Windows 8, and hence reactivate the program.

The program is invite-only and open to US ctizens only.

Update June 2016: The program has been discontinued after release of Windows 10.
