If you are not using Illustrator or Photoshop already this is a great way to get into it for map-making and cartography.

We are even thinking about a special deal on MAPublisher 8 and/or Geographic Imager 2 for CS2 users who might want to get into the MAPublisher/Illustrator and Geographic Imager/Photoshop workflows on the cheap.

With a free copy of CS2 all you'd need to buy is these older CS2-compatible versions of MAPublisher and Geographic Imager.

What do you folks think of that?

Shame I already have CS6 :) Looks like this has been an unintentional move by Adobe and it'll be interesting to see what they're going to do. Been reading the Slashdot thread on this subject and there's people there who think this will mean the end for Photoshop Elements (since Photoshop CS2 is way better) and could also hurt sales of Acrobat.

This does not appear to be true:

However, there is a page with DL links and serial numbers so really the whole thing is confusing really.

Effective December 13, Adobe disabled the activation server for CS2 products and Acrobat 7 because of a technical glitch. These products were released over 7 years ago and do not run on many modern operating systems. But to ensure that any customers activating those old versions can continue to use their software, we issued a serial number directly to those customers.  While this might be interpreted as Adobe giving away software for free, we did it to help our customer.
