Is anyone using it and if so how does it compare to Dreamweaver?

I have been using it since it came out and have been thoroughly pleased. I very rarely used Dreamweaver but EW is much better I think. A lot easier to operate and the new and upcoming versions will even be better.

Just got back from the MS Summit discussing EW actually and very impressed. When I first started using it, you could tell that MS understood compliancy and that is the way they want to go with this WYSIWYG editor

Compliance is obviously important but I find that DW8 does a good job on this too.

I didn't look at the latest trial download yet, is ASP.NET the only server side technology supported still? Are there PHP plugins?

Currently ASP.NET is supported and PHP is not supported just yet. But if you can code PHP then it should not be that much of an issue

When you sat that PHP is not supported does that mean it just doesn't show up in the WYSIWYG? You can still use PHP includes and the like, right?

Right you can still type in any code that you would like to be seen / handled, just like most other WYSIWYG editors

BeeDee:
Ok I just downloaded EW trial and have a headache the size of my screen! I totally LOVE FP so this might be a problem for me. Dreamweaver? Now I think DW is alot like FP but not sure. For me...personally; I don't like EW this very moment. However once I play around a bit more I might love it. I think most of these editors are a bit much the same; but it's what you are used to that one feels more comfortable with. My personal opinion here.

I am surprised at the lack of response ot this thread. It looks like there cannot be many people using it yet.

I'd check and see if the PHP Rocket plugin works with EWD.

I've been using EWD on and off since its release, I got one of the first releases from Amazon.

While I'm impressed with the overall package, I'm a little upset that they removed a few functionality features that I use regularly.

If you are working on a 100% .NET website, EWD is going to be required. Sure, you can open it in FP2003, but there are going to be some issues, I've already encountered them.

EWD appears to be a viable replacement for Visual Studio.

I've always preferred DW over FrontPage, but now that Microsoft has come out with EW, I think of it and DW as more of equals now.

I have used it a few times and can't find anything to get really excited about. Some of the "nice" features from Frontpage have gone and not been replaced. A lot of CSS hype but a lot of it appears to be just that from what I've seen. Some really crap stuff as well, like the accompanying templates - not just the design but they way they are set up, I mean who sets up a separate directory for each new page you create on a site?

3 / 10 - could and should do better.
