SharePoint Designer Licensing

OfficeSharePointDesigner2007_1264 I get asked often how much SharePoint Designer costs, and I never have the answer. I guess I've always been spoiled with Subscriptions through MSDN, TechNet, etc..  The SharePoint team published a post on licensing for SPD:

The software is licensed per desktop, and has an estimated retail price of $299.95.  You can upgrade for $159.95  from different applications (see referenced post).

You can purchase it online.
