I would like to take a few minutes to update you on SharePoint Designer 2007 distribution strategy as we completed the General Availability launch of Office 2007 and Vista.
First and foremost, we have a free download of SharePoint Designer (trial version) on Microsoft.com which is accessible on Office Online and MSDN (Non-subscriber section).
Even though our presence in retail physical stores will be very limited, we are referenced in online stores so that people wanting SharePoint Designer could get it at compusa.com or Amazon.com or PCMall.com for instance. Staples is carrying SharePoint Designer as well as of this morning.
Additionally, we have a full volume licensing offering for our enterprise and academic customers and it has been in place since the end of November 2006
It is awesome to see our product finally for sale!
