That's how I was able to afford CS2 (the whole thing, not just PS CS2). The disadvantage I later found associated with the educational version is I did not qualifty for any discounted pricing on the subsequent versions (when I no longer could claim to be a student). Which has left me with a version that will not run on the current OS offered by Mac. Which so far is not a big deal because I like CS2 and my old Mac runs just fine. An interesting aspect of the educational version discounting is the discount alone on any of the major Adobe products pays for the registation fee at my local community college. I guess the moral is to sign up for a class, any class, and then go stock up on whatever software you need.
