Freehand can be Free

Postby gusto » Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:08 am

If you buy the physical Windows Freehand MX box from Adobe, it comes with a Win CD and a Mac/Win CD. I've seen a bunch of these second Mac/Win CD's on eBay for the full Freehand price.

It's pretty sneaky, but I don't think it's illegal, because you are selling your own property.

I'm keeping both my CD's for keepsake. I don't have kids to feed or anything, so I don't have too big of a hole in my pocket for buying Freehand.

Bit of an old post this for mac users (rather than PC users) but I have recently discovered that you can pretty much get FreeHand 3 through MX now on Macintosh Garden - now it is considered 'redundant''old' software. There has probabely never been a better time to try out the best drawing software out there. I am sure a similar site exists for old PC software if anybody on the forum can post the link.

Oh yeah! I like and got my FreeHand 3 installs from there—even though I still have my original floppy disks but no floppy drive. Also grabbed the discontinued Adobe Dimensions. Both are running in Sheepshaver.
