Adobe giving away FREE copies of CS2 software - here's the download links for Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and more!

Incredibly, Adobe decided to give away free copies of its Creative Suite 2 (CS2) package letting users  can pick up a totally legitimate, free copy of  former top-of-the-range products like Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2 and Premiere 2.0. But then they realised that it was their own cock up so they got heavy on every site that reported what happened.

Although the CS2 is getting on for ten years old, it’s still a hugely powerful software package which is easily good enough for to line work today.

So why did Adobe suddenly get so generous? Well, according to Gizmodo, they simply got fed up keeping the activation servers running to support legitimate installations of CS2, so decided to offer the whole thing up for free. But then they changed their mind and released the lawyers on every site that relayed the news. Including us. .

UPDATE 27th Oct 2015:

A whole two years after their blundering cock up led people to believe they were free to download old copies of their software, Adobe sent us a threatening legal letter demanding that this site be closed down, nuked from orbit, crushed into atoms etc unless we instantly removed all the links.

You know, the links that they provided themselves. The twats.

Anyway, they’re gone from here but we don’t think you’ll have much trouble finding them elsewhere due to Adobe’s own stupidity.
