Now this is call software stimulus package:
Adobe® Flex™ Builder 3 Professional for unemployed developers
Adobe Flex Builder 3 software is currently available for free for software developers who are affected by the current economic condition and are currently unemployed.
To receive the product under this program, you must attest to the fact that you are currently unemployed and that the software will be used only for your personal use not for any production or commercial purposes.
I attest that the following statements are true:
- I am not currently employed or being paid to develop software applications or web pages
- Adobe Flex Builder 3 Software I receive under this program is for my personal use to learn about Adobe Flex and improve my skills
- My license to use Flex Builder 3 under this program will not be used for production or commercial purposes, nor will it be transferred to any other person or entity, including to my employer should I become employed.
Get it free here.
With all the negative gripes I have with Adobe, I am surprised to see this one.
