*** UPDATE ***
We have heard wrong! Adobe is absolutely not providing free copies of CS2!
“What is true is that Adobe is terminating the activation servers for CS2 and that for existing licensed users of CS2 who need to reinstall their software, copies of CS2 that don’t require activation but do require valid serial numbers are available. (Special serial numbers are provided on the page for each product download.) See <http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1114930>.”
Editor’s Note: We’re sorry to have gotten your hopes up!
Anytime someone offers something free to the masses people can be skeptical. Rightfully so too. You have to buy one and only then do you get the item free. Or you have to sign up and then get it free. Etc, etc right? Well Adobe has just released an entire download of their CS2 Premium Plus Suite for free; and while you have to create an Adobe account, that’s free too.
This can easily be a gift for those just starting out in the design world or for those looking to upgrade for cheap. It could be for a little cousin of yours, or an Aunt or Uncle who always ask you for the most random designs with hour contraints that go something like this:
You: So when do you need this Uncle Eddie?
Uncle Eddie: Well, if you can, I need this by today.
You: Oh, really.
Uncle Eddie: Yeah, but I’m sure someone like you can knock stuff like this out in a few hours nephew. It’s just a logo, poster, and postcard. Shouldn’t take long right??
You: ….(silent frustration)
So sign up Uncle Eddie and the rest of the family and friends who need to learn just how “easy” it is, so they don’t always come to you for the fun designs.
So what do you think about this? Will you get it for yourself or someone else?
This could be the perfect solution for some churches and non-profits, too!
