Adobe CS2 Creative Suite now free download

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Adobe are giving away CS2 Creative Suite for Win and Mac. The Adobe page with the links is temporarily overloaded and unavailable, bu the direct download links work and are available here. (URL deleted)

Also note that CS2 versions of other programs are also available!


Moderator edit: it appears that the reporting was in error, from Forbes:


No, You Can't Download Adobe CS2 Applications For Free

"Update: Following a frenzy of Internet activity and some confusion it appears that Adobe isnt giving away free copies of Adobe CS2.

Adobe scientist Dov Isaacs clarifies:

On behalf of Adobe Systems Incorporated

You 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 dont 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."Arima2013-01-07 21:50:58

Yes, it's true. Thanks for the heads-up, SointulArt. As Forbes says, "CS2 is not new by any standards it was first released in April 2005 but its still a fantastic offer and capable of some serious work. "

Sorry guys, but after seeing coverage on CNET and many other websites I thought it was legit.

Although it does seem as if Adobe has screwed up a bit here. They released the download files and serial numbers into the wild and I can only assume that they will proliferate across the web now like wildfire.
