They're a bit old, CS2 and the others on there, but for some people it may be good enough as these are insanely priced software packages usually. "End of Life" deal, they're legit free copies. Saw it on Slickdeals:
http://slickdeals.net/f/5784982-Ado...Pro-2-Audition-3-more?p=56674132#edit56674132

I'm downloading some right now, their servers are probably getting hammered as I'm only about 40% after about 15 minutes.

The serial numbers are on the Slickdeals page right above the download links. Here's the standalone Windows PS:

Well. Fuck me. Thanks.

It sounds like Adobe is trying to at least reach out to the illegal users and "grey market" users out there. The question is; will Adobe then let these users buy a cheaper upgrade with the free serial?
Much like they did with Creative Cloud, Adobe knows their next market to expand are "pro-sumers" who can't afford $1200 for the basic package of the latest Creative Suite.

If you have a legit serial, CS6 is $30 a month (I think that deal is for a limited time). otherwise it's $50 a month. It's worth it, CS6 has some killer features.

I didn't see this little instruction so I had to restart the install:
Quote from clearpants
:
Those of you having problems with the Disc 2 error. How to fix it:

*Note This is for those who are extracting to the default directories.

1. Run/extract Disc 2, Disc 3, and Extras first
2. For some reason Disc 2 extracts to C:\Creative Suite instead of C:\Creative Suite CS2 like Disc 1 and 3 do.
3. Copy the contents of C:\Creative Suite to C:\Creative Suite CS2
4. Run the Disc 1 installer/extractor.

If you chose your own directory for discs 1-3 to extract to then you probably shouldn't encounter the can't find disc 2 error.
And then I got the updates by changing the system time and all is good now:

To update the programs once installed: Change system date to before 10/01/2011, run Adobe updater, download/install updates, then change system date back to current

Updating Acrobat Pro 8 is a bitch. There are 17 update files and not cumulative.

If you have an old cs2 installer, the serial still works.
