Autodesk ceo Carl Bass is admirer of Adobe's way of doing things, so much so that he has remarked numerous times that he bundled his company's software just like Adobe did.
Yesterday Adobe halted the license servers for its CS2 bundle of software, which includes the following programs for Windows or OS X: Acrobat 3D 1.0, Acrobat Standard 7.0, Acrobat Pro 8.0, Audition 3.0, GoLive CS2, Illustrator CS2, InCopy CS2, InDesign CS2, Photoshop CS2, Photoshop Elements 4.0/5.0, and Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0. You can download them from here.
Adobe came out with this software in 2005, and when I read that, it occurred to me that Autodesk could crush its ankle-biting competitors -- Bricsys, Graebert, and ITC -- by releasing AutoCAD 2006 (shipped in 2005) free. That's all it would take.
Boom. Over and done with.
