As we all saw at Google I/O last year, everybody was getting excited about Adobe's key note where they showed off Adobe Catalyst doing HTML5 drag and drop with a Ducati motorcycles promo.
I have been poking around noticing that there is little to no support for HTML5 in Expression Web even though there is in IE9 and people have been asking for it.
As a MSDN Premium subscriber I have downloaded and tried Expression web. As a certified money opti-mizer, I have not upgraded my Adobe Creative Suite Premium since CS3 a few years ago. I work for an actual legitimate company, so if I used pirated versions Adobe could and most likely would either send a legal threat or sue or something nasty like that. You can view registration information or lack there of in the binary produced in files created by many Adobe products.
Is Microsoft going to take some initiative here with Expression tools or should I be planning on a CS6 upgrade for HTML5 Canvas RAD GUI tools?
Other than the Photoshop content-fill effect that was introduced in CS5 I have not felt a need for the pricy upgrade just quite yet.
It would be nice to see Microsoft come in first place for once on this front. Are they even headed in that direction?
I would love to go to a single Google I/O conference(say Google I/O 2011), and mind you I've been there every single year and am an alumni, and see Microsoft NOT get boo'ed in every single keynote speech and in almost every single session there. Even the fireside chats.
This type of initiative could help curb that.
