Microsoft killing off Expression suite of Web and design tools | Ars Technica

Expression Design 4 and Expression Web 4 can now be freely downloaded, but both are "end-of-lifed"
"With this move, Microsoft is essentially ending the development of any tooling that's oriented at design professionals rather than developers. In the light of the company's new, albeit uneven, emphasis on design, this is a rather surprising move to say the least. Adobe is dominant in this field, and it doesn't appear that Microsoft's products were making any real impact on the market (except perhaps for Blend). But now the company appears to no longer even be trying to court designers and have them integrate with its design ethos, such as it is."
