Microsoft Expression Professional Subscription

Microsoft recently announced the RTM of Expression Studio 2, and a new way to buy Expression via a Professional Subscription which appears simillar to MSDN. What I find interesting is what they include with this license:

  • Expression® Studio
  • Visual Studio® Standard
  • Office Standard
  • Office Visio® Professional
  • Windows® XP
  • Windows Vista® Business Edition
  • Virtual PC
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac
  • Pre-configured virtualized server environments

I think it is good that they are embracing the Macintosh platform by including Parallels, at the very least this is a good business decision on their part. The thing I find the most interesting is that they are including a license for Windows XP.
