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.

I think that's a question that I'll have to take up with the administrators since we don't even have Expression in our system.
In a previous post , I mentioned that Microsoft was bringing out the new Expression Professional Subscription
