    • Wow, this is amazing if it works. CS2 is probably the best version for Photoshop (imo) apart from 7/8. CS3 is when they added the Photoshop Extended iirc version with rudimentary 3D capabilities that were pretty useless bloat considering Photoshop will never compare to even the most basic 3D rendering software. Haven't bothered to check out CS6 since I haven't done design work in a while but also, completely superficial, this is the last version where they used those beautiful graphic pictorial icons before switching to the ugly colour-coded two-letter icons.

    • Audition 3.0 works on both Win7 + Win8 but drivers for audio interfaces for Win8 are nonexistant. I've been using Audition 3.0 on my Win7 system since Win7's release without any issues.

      You are so incredibly wrong. CS2 is incredibly slow compared to cs3, and cs3 is slow compared to any more modern version. They also added a lot of other tools to more updated versions that are more than just 3d features - excellent native noise reduction for photographers, content aware fill, tons of other features too numerous to mention - even rudimentary googling would tell you that. And the 3d features that you dismissed are hugely helpful to many graphic designers and tinkerers. And on top of the endless features added the difference in speed is HUGE.

      They're giving away cs2 to reduce piracy of their current version, and for many people its just fine, but lets not pretend its CS2 is better than CS3 or any other release. That's just someone who hasn't used CS3, CS4, CS5, or CS6 now.

      Don't spread nonsense.

      I bet the license says personal use only, but you'd have to read it to be sure. Maybe...?

      I'm not denying speed differences, of course it's going to be faster and especially so since this isn't designed for Windows 7. That's obvious. And the UI is a lot cleaner too and prettier in the later versions from what I remember.

      But the content aware fill was pretty garbage for anything moderately complex and it always gave an amateur look to it, I always had to resort back to doing it manually with the clone stamp tool. Reducing noise is pretty easy if you play around with blurring duplicate layers and messing around with its levels. Yea, I guess a one-click noise reduction feature is great for a newbie photographer, but any designer could do that on their own. If you want to tinker with 3D, I'd suggest just trying out Blender for free and foregoing the half-baked 3D features in Photoshop. I actually can't believe Adobe was stupid enough to try and incorporate 3D features in a 2D raster image editor. What on earth were they smoking.

      If I had to buy a version of Photoshop, and I wanted the most bang for my buck features-wise, I would get CS2, in my opinion. Yea, I'm not denying it'd lack the speed enhancements of later versions but content aware fill, noise reduction, those 3d tools are pretty useless features to me and most of them can be achieved with the native built-in tools by any competent designer therefore are just bloat to me. Again, my opinion. I don't disagree with your statement that they're doing that to reduce piracy, it's a pretty smart move.
