Apple Launches $0.99 Mac FaceTime App on Mac App Store

Curious that it’s not free. How many people will hang on to the free beta version to avoid paying a buck?

Update: Dan Moren tweets:

Apple told me that the FaceTime $1 charge for existing Mac users is regulatory related (remember the $2 802.11n patch circa 2007?).

But then how could the Mac App Store itself be a free download?
