Wasn't CS1 accidentally released for free? I think I downloaded it. It's Pshop 7 + all the other creative suite stuff in the same generation. They had to make it publicly available to honor some sort of post support-cutoff license thing I think? It was only meant for actual CS owners, but some kind of fuck-up in the way it was supplied online made it essentially a free for all.

CS2: http://www.techspot.com/news/51316-adobe-offering-creative-suite-2-for-free-but-they-didnt-mean-to.html

Adobe turned off the old activation servers, and as a result it became impossible to legally reinstall the software and have the serial checked remotely.

It was easy to download and it would work as intended, but it was (and is) still illegal, as you have to own the license to it.

Too many people (even in the media) were seriously confused about this but they absolutely did not give it away for free.

You made my day.
