As of 2021, the retail version of the NXT software is still available for download from the official LEGO MINDSTORMS download page (near the bottom of the page).

The Education version of the software is available on the retired products download page.

    Or you can download the EV3 Software (Home or Education) and use this for programming the NXT (but with limitations). Jan 13, 2017 at 21:39

The software is now available for download (Win/Mac) on LEGO Education site.
