UPDATE: Microsoft Expression Design is free now
Nineteen months ago I wrote how I felt that Expression Studio is a better design value than the comparable Adobe suite. This price disparity still exists more than a year an a half since I wrote it. On Amazon.com, owners of Photoshop can upgrade to CS4 Web Premium for just $1290. Owners of any Expression product can upgrade to Expression Studio 2 for $330.
But the savings just got even better. US residents can take advantage of special holiday pricing at the Microsoft Store -- the price for Expression Studio 2 Upgrade is now $175 and the full Expression Studio 2 non-upgrade price is $350. These prices are for a limited time only.
But lest we focus on shopping this Christmas holiday, here's an audio clip from my son to all of us expressing the true meaning of Christmas.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
