Adobe CS2 now free (sort of)

    It's ancient. But free.

    Well, technically it's not free, but they've taken down the activation servers for those who do own copies, so provided untracked downloads and offline serials. So you can happily download an official copy of this eight year old software without shelling out a grand for it.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Free is most always nice.

    Installed Photoshop CS2 on my Ivy Bridge/Windows 8 64-bit machine yesterday and it works fine.

    You're meant to own a copy already, so not technically free, but they've pretty much stated that they aren't going to track anyone down and make them pay for it.

    Shame it won't work on any modern Macs :(

    Oh they've even given up needing to login with your Adobe account like they did yesterday, I even bothered to get my password changed as I couldn't remember it.
