I take back what I said before about them winning the smartest company of the year award.

I have been using Gimp and Inkscape at the office, but I'll be deleting those suckers, forthwith.

At home I was fiddling with the trial of CS6, but I don't have much use many of the new features.

Edit: Re-installing Gimp and Inkscape on office computer now!

That said, $50 an month for CS6 is not a bad deal.

Gimp is a horrible piece of software. The UI is just atrocious.

Quite possibly the best review of Gimp I have ever read.

These are still quite powerful as "given away" products, even if not the latest. This is where Windows amazing backward compatibility of old software wins over OS X. :D

So I assume it will stay like this, so later on down the road you can still download it?

Way to go Adobe.
So tempting to get, but already have PaintShop Pro X5 installed which I'm retraining myself to use again. Been many years.
At one point in time I used to always have the latest PSP and Photoshop installed as graphics design was one of my biggest things.
Had all the cool plugins for them too. I probably used PSP more though.
Anyways, nice that Adobe has done this,

Close the topic and rename it then.

Yes, I should have done.

Adobe has not released CS2 for free.

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 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>.

You are only legally entitled to download and install with that serial number if you have a valid license to the product!
