Microsoft Again, a lot of news from the PDC. Microsoft unveiled its Expression Studio, which contains Acrylic, a vector and bitmap graphic editing and creation tool; Sparkle, a 2D and 3D animation tool; and Quartz, a design tool for page layouts and web sites. About Quartz: it does not require IE. In other news from the PDC: while at first look Microsoft Gadgets may appear a lot like Apple/Konfabulator Widgets, Microsoft has bigger plans for the technology.

For those who can watch the tour. Does Acrylic work in the same way Macromedia Fireworks does or is there some big difference?

I wonder why there isn't such an app for Linux yet. I mean even BeOS had one ;)
I think Inkscape would be a lovely foundation for such an app. Just extend it beyond SVG and we'll have a wonderful app.
