I am interested in buying flash however even with the discount given to students as a program it is still a large investment. I was wondering if I am able to buy an older version for example "Flash 8" at a reduced price from adobe or another trusted retailer I know the newer version have updated the program alot but many of the new features will be unused by me and the older version would suit my needs better.
I have tried contacting adobe but with no answer within 2 weeks so thought I would try here.
If Adobe sales hasn't responded, chances are they do not sell the older versions any longer. I'm pretty sure they do not provide tech support for them, so not selling them would make sense. If you can find older versions for sale, I doubt you'll get any kind of recommendation from anyone except those selling it that they are a reliable seller.
