Richard Campbell just chatted me with this tidbit that I missed from the MVP Summit.

Richard Campbell says:Dewd.

Scott Hanselman - Portland says:kewl

Richard Campbell says:So get this - at the MVP summit, Balmer did his keynote thing. And he had a list of most common concerns by the MVP. Guess what was in the top 10? The image editor tangle.

Scott Hanselman - Portland says:awesome

Scott Hanselman - Portland says:what did he say?

Richard Campbell says:He said "I didn't know anything about this. So I called up some folks at Microsoft, and apparently we make a lot of different image editors."

Scott Hanselman - Portland says:holy crap

Richard Campbell says:And so apparently there is a Balmer-demanded initiative to make one image editor to rule them all, one editor to find them, one editor to bring them all and in the Windows bind them.

Scott Hanselman - Portland says:can I blog this conversation?

Richard Campbell says:Fine with me, bub. I was gonna put comments into your blog anyway, but this is more fun.

Photo editor to end it all? Well, buying Adobe will probabl never fly, I bet they can pick up Corel for cheap though.

So what does this mean for the Expression people? I cannot see MS producing a hybrid vector/bitmap editor like Fauve Matisse/XRes.

Maybe they will make a separate XAML desinger for the Longhorn people and fold the stroke engine into the 'one editor to rule them all'
