    Old Software

    Out of interest, what do people do with old software and the licences?

    Since we purchased CS3 a few years ago, I have no need for the licence and media for the following:

    Macromedia Studio MX / MX2004 and 8
    Adobe CS2 disks
    Illustrator 10 disk and licence
    Acrobat 5.0 disk and licence
    Photoshop CS disk and licence
    Office XP disk and licence

    Do I throw them? Can I sell them?

    Sigh. Isn't it a shame that we are so wasteful. I don't have the space. Anybody want some disks?

    I'd happily take CS2 off your hands and Illustrator would be quite good fun for some of our kids.

    You should probably check with the licensor what your transfer rights are before you start distributing them, even if it's in good faith.
