Posted 22 December 2012 - 07:17 PM

So MS is killing off their Expression suite.

What do you guys think it would take to get them to open source it?

A few billion dollars, perhaps. Though I doubt even that would do the trick. Something tells me they don't want the private code bases out there for all the anti-Microsoft people to pick through, pointing out flaws.

Some of the key features of the expression studio (for example Blend) are available in Visual Studio 2012. Just FYI.
