Why should I pay for Microsoft's Blend? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm learnig Silverlight right now and that's a lot of work. But why should I pay for developertools like "Microsoft Blend"? Microsoft should be happy that I'm going to learn and spread their technology? Is maybe something like a "express" version available of blend?

    What's your opinion?

  • i would slightly agree with you, and also would like to thank MS for not allowing the trade up from frontpage2000,98,etc which i also paid for.

    whereas the pricing is great, if you were a company, it bit steep for an individual, and i fear buying a sort of unfinished product if i have to pay more in the future for the final version...oh but i've been doing that with windows for years..how dumb am i??  lol
