This is where you need a download manager. When I wake up, all should be downloaded.

Thanks Paul.

According to this article, Adobe isn't giving the software away for free.
http://gurusunleashed.com/807890/adobe- ... nDesign%29

Apparently some people we're having trouble activating their CS2 software so Adobe offered them activation-free software -- and word go around!

So, technically, the software isn't being given away. But you can still get it if you grab it before they take it down.

I'm not sure what the ethical thing to do is...

BTW, CS2 is too old to install on Intel Macs.

Tried Downloading Audition, the file quits after 250mb, it is supposed to be over 4 GB.
Don't think it is working anymore :(

I got everything downloaded using Reget Deluxe 5.2 download manager. Got Premiere Pro 2.0 working in Oracle's VirtualBox with XP Pro as client. I had to turn off Webroot SecureAnywhere in order to install and run PPro. I guess PPro tries some tricky things.

I downloaded the CS2 package. Why are you downloading Audition by itself?

Steve I found some excellent advice on taking CS2 for free here:

Sorry Steve, from Roadside Ron

Stealing is okay until it becomes your stuff that you invested time, money, effort and sweat in. Then it's a criminal matter. Most folks who try to justify it never created any intellectual property. And until they do, they will probably never understand how it can be construed as stealing. I've also learned that you can't reason with unreasonable people


saw some parallels between downloading a "free" copy of CS2 the your comments about it being ethical...

Adobe has a rather large value recovery department that reminds folks that are using but forgot to purchase the their Adobe software.
