WARNING!!! To potential upgraders, be certain of software Jan. 26 2011
By David Nine - Published on Amazon.com

Adobe has a very terrible policy and an even worse implementation of information on their upgrade policy for any Adobe graphics/web products!!

As we found out the hard way, Adobe will not allow you to upgrade your previous (in this case) Illustrator software if it was part of the Creative Suite bundle. So regardless of the fact that you have a folder on your computer that is named Adobe Illustrator CSx with a program inside named Adobe Illustrator CSx that when opened presents a splash screen stating Adobe Illustrator CSx, your software is not eligible for upgrading. In addition, other than a small link at the bottom of the page leading you to an upgrade eligibility "tool" page (which in turn gives a rather ambiguous answer), nothing informs you of what is or is not required to upgrade other than a copy of "Adobe Illustrator CS4, CS3 or CS2"...of which I indeed have.

After 30 minute of inane questions from online chat support, the provided a refund w/ my Amazon.com receipt. We shall see if Adobe, first indeed provides a full refund, and second, how long it will take such a refund to emerge.

In any case, this is a terrible policy and further evidence that ADOBE SUCKS!!!! SO PLEASE BE CERTAIN BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THIS UPGRADE THAT YOU ARE UPGRADING FROM AN INDIVIDUAL COPY OF ILLUSTRATOR; NOT ONE THAT CAME WITH CREATIVE SUITE.

(FYI...I'd rather read a Russian newspaper than watch a Flash ad!)

Adobe Illustrator CS5 Feb. 4 2011

Illustrator CS5 is not for the amateur. You must be an advanced user and have used previous versions of this application. This CS5 version is not for the faint-hearted! If you can say yes to these previously listed qualifications then GO FOR IT!
I have been using Illustrator applications through all versions, for 20 years and this CS5 version is by far the most demanding, but also most rewarding so far! Adobe has excelled.

Adobe Illustrator Upgrade (Mac) July 16 2011

This Adobe Illustrator upgrade for my iMac is exactly as described in the listing. I entered my previous Illust. CS2 product code when installing and had NO problems...easy installation! I have been using Adobe products for 25 years and I am still amazed at the unlimited graphics I am able to create. This is a GREAT product and I am glad there are upgrades so I don't have to pay the full price every time I power-up! : )
