As Qixing mentioned in the previous post, Expression 2 is now live and available for trial download. One of the cool new things that is being introduced with Expression 2 is the Expression Professional Subscription, starting in June 2008.
If you are a designer, developer or wear both hats, this might be an option you will strongly want to consider. The Expression Professional Subscription contains a veritable treasure chest of software for a fraction of the price all of the software combined (Canadian pricing is still being worked out, but numbers I have seen make this a very good deal).
Software included in the Expression Professional Subscription:
- Expression Studio 2
- Visual Studio 2008 Standard
- Windows Vista Business
- Windows XP SP2
- Microsoft Office Standard
- Visio Professional
- Virtualized Server Environments
- Virtual PC (for use with Virtualized Environments)
- Parallels Desktop for Mac (a 3rd party application to run Windows OS on Apple hardware concurrent with OSX)
Stay tuned on pricing and availability. This is a great way to lower the costs for you to build great experiences on the web that are cross-platform and help you grow your business in the process.
