SharePoint Designer - The Cat Is Out of the Bag

Today marks the official release of SharePoint Designer as a free product offering from Microsoft.  While overall, this announcement can certainly be considered a good thing by the SharePoint community (who doesn’t like free stuff?), as a SharePoint “administrator” it makes me cringe. It is a good thing all of us have “locked down" SharePoint Designer in our respective environments.

You did remember to lock down, didn’t you?
