Microsoft phasing out its Expression design tool suite

Quote:
It looks like it's the end of the road for Microsoft's suite of Expression design tools, as Peter Bright over at Ars Technica notes.

Expression Design 4 is being phased out entirely, though it will be patched through 2015. Expression Web 4 also is being dropped. And Expression Blend -- which made it up to Version 5 -- is being folded into Visual Studio.

good riddance...

I once downloaded the free version from Dreamspark (some MS dealer that gives out free stuff to students) and used the web software for a while. what i needed up with were corrupted pages all the time that for some reason i needed to rename to make them work. i now use dreamweaver and so problems at all. i rather pay $300 for a software than to use that free software (free to students at the time).

I didn't use too much of their graphics software etc., but my impression is it creates too many MS-proprietary files that are not universally accepted.

it seems MS realized not even giving them out free makes people use their products. i really like MS products (windows, Office etc.) but in some areas they are not good at. And professionals spend a lot of time in training and learning to use the tools. A software being cheaper doesn't really help a lot if it isn't up to the task.

From the bunch, the only I've actually used is Blend to do some WPF work and to import vector graphics from Illustrator into a XAML Canvas. I wonder how one can do such things so easily without Expression Blend. Is it already included into Visual Studio 2012? Or maybe for a next release?

I use expression web 4 all the time, but when it's time to upgrade I can always go back to dreamweaver.
