Ok, so Microsoft eventually found out that their Expression suite had no chance to compete with the likes of Adobe Illustrator and Dreamweaver, and their suite was discontinued. However, they are now offering Microsoft Expression Design 4 and Microsoft Expression Web 4 as a free download. Of course they aren't open source, nevertheless they are an interesting addition to the range of free graphic design tools out there...
So, what do you guys think of these programs in comparison with Inkscape, BlueGriffon, KompoZer, etc? How will new competition influence the development of for instance Inkscape? (I've got a couple of opinions myself, but I'd rather hear from you first.)
