When I last looked at these tools they seemed tied very tightly into the MS
.NET architecture. Clever slick fun stuff if you thirst for Vista/.NET Kool
Aid, but not all that useful in my shop's (mostly) Java environment. Would
be interested to hear more about Expression from testers or evaluators on
this list - one of the tools seems specifically aimed at Interaction
Designers.

I've evaluated each of these products by downloading them and going
through some of the tutorials Microsoft provides. This is how I would
compare them to existing products:

Graphic Designer = Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator combined, a lot like
Fireworks if I understand correctly.

Interaction Designer = Microsoft's answer to Flash using the new .Net
3.0 framework and XAML (XML based SVG, integrates with Visual Studio)

Web Designer = Dreamweaver

This is of course my limited first impressions.
