    I have 4 legal copies (5, 6, 7 and CS) and 1 pirate copy. I download it until I can afford it and then I legalize it...Except for my downloaded CS2, it's too much of a memory pig to use and justify the $$ so I deleted it form my HD. Still have the CD tho. :hs:

    I don't know why two copies of my thread came about, but whatever....what about the edu version? That is what I have used and its significantly less expensive

    Dispite all the piracy that goes on I read in the paper a few months ago that Adobe made a shitload of money last year.

    yeah, but these are mainly people who are using it for business purposes. I'd be willing to bet about 30-50% of your basic users have a pirated copy.
