Adobe is turning off the authentication servers used with its Creative Suite 2 (CS2) software of
several many years ago. The upshot is they’re handing out the software and the serial numbers in case anyone is still using it. This isn’t the 30 day free trial, it’s the whole shebang; Photoshop, Acrobat, Premiere, GoLive everything.
Yes it’s old and it probably only runs on
OS/2 XP but if your boss won’t spring for Photoshop or Premiere and you’re in a bind it may just save your sanity. Make sure you check the system requirements first, or better yet, hang the system requirements, download it anyway and see what happens. Available for Mac and PC versions. Via Adobe.
[Update: Well according to this Gizmodo post, it’s all a mistake. Or is it? The files are still available, along with serial numbers, so we’re now genuinely confused.]
