Good news, folks! Sharepoint Designer is now free - look here!
From now everybody can build webportal with minimal investments:
- Windows Sharepoint Services ("small MOSS") - free;
- Sharpoint Designer - free;
- Additional Kits (for example, accessibility kits - ARF, AKS, BKS) - free!
The only things required: a machine, a license of Windows Server (2003 and better), an internet connection and a little bit of time :-)
