Where is the Illustrator 9.0.4 Update? It's not coming up in any search, and it's not on the FTP server, either. The only thing on the FTP server is Illustrator 9.0.2, plus a 9.0.1 Update for U.S. English, which won't work on 9.0.2 anyway.
The highest it went was to 9.0.2.
That what I thought. On a related note, do you know where the Illustrator 9 trial version is (for any and all languages)? I don't see any reference to that on the web site anymore, or the FTP server, but the 9.0.2 updates for 3 languages are there.
no 9 trial version,
no 10 trial version,
no CS trial version,
no CS2 trial version,
no CS3 trial version,
no CS4 trial version,
and soon no CS5 trial version.
I'm sorry, but that's incorrect. There is a trial version of 9, 10, CS, CS2, CS3, CS4, and CS5. Just because you may not see them on the web site now doesn't mean they don't exist, or never did.
Adobe is the only source for trial software (legally).
Once a new version is released, all old version trials are removed and never seen again. You won't find an old version trial from Adobe anywhere.

Sorry, but you're wrong. Their FTP server does have trial downloads for various versions still there, including 8, CS, and CS2, as well as many other different applications. Adobe is not the only legal source of the trials, either; anyone can store it on their server and distribute it, because it is a trial, not a licensed version.
