In a previous post, I mentioned that Microsoft was bringing out the new Expression Professional Subscription to help designers build great experiences in WPF and Silverlight.  The Subscription is now live and can be purchased.

The site can be found here.

Again, the benefits of the subscription are many, some of which are listed below:

  • Currently in Subscription
    • The full Expression Studio 2 Suite (Design, Blend, Web, Media and Encoder)
    • Visual Studio Standard
    • Microsoft Office 2007 Standard
    • Microsoft Office Visio 2007 Professional
    • Windows Vista Business Edition
    • Windows XP Professional
    • Virtual PC
    • Parallels Desktop for Mac and PC
    • Design, development and test licenses
    • Technical Support Incidents
  • Products Announced and will be in the subscription soon
    • Windows Vista Ultimate
    • Microsoft Office Project 2007
    • Microsoft Office Groove Server 2007

All in all, this is a great way to start building WPF and Silverlight experiences for a very low price.  Pricing is also available on the site here.
