Microsoft Releases Expression Web Designer First Community Technology Preview

Microsoft has posted for download the first Community Technology Preview of the new Expression Web Designer.   At least, that's what this article started out saying.  Prior to publishing it I decided to download the CTP and have a quick peek inside. 

Once I downloaded the 200 + MB file I ran setup and was told just after the license agreement that the setup had failed.   No reason was given for the failure.  Apparently I am not the only one to experience the problem as the download link now simply states that we should try back tomorrow as they are experiencing "technical difficulties". 

I was under the impression that the setup program was pretty much a solved problem.  Perhaps I was mistaken.  I'll keep a watch on it and let you know when they have overcome the "difficulty".

Microsoft Expression is a new suite of tools that work together to enable you to produce user interfaces for web and desktop based applications.  It consists of a Graphic Designer, Interactive Designer, and a Web Designer.
