Default Photoshop CS2 is NOT free on Adobe's site

learned via http://fstoppers.com/have-an-older-c...mium-plus-free , I actually can't directly link to Adobe's site right now because of errors and redirects as they are understandably swamped. But yeah, free, legal, and all you need is an Adobe account which is totally free to make.

NICE.

Sorry guys, but it turns out CS2 actually isn't being given away for free. Turns out it was just a major fuck-up on Adobe's part.

http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html

Man, this page is still giving downloads. I can't install and confirm whether or not the key works, I'm also looking for a better source than a Tumblr post for this whole hoax's validity.

^ aha, that links explains it better. Whoopsies.

So from what I am reading, it's technically not free for anybody but existing owners, but because the activation servers are being taken down, Adobe's just like "hey, so.. only owners of this can download it, but there's literally no way we can stop you otherwise." So Kaze, you should be safe to use it forevaaa unless Adobe disables those and realizes how fucking stupid this plan is.
