This is mostly a gripe, with a little bit of a question. Well, it turns out that I've activated my copy of Photoshop CS2 too many times. All of it was legitimate, of course. I have had it on three computersan old G4 tower, my previous (G4) Mac Mini (sold on eBay, hard drive wiped), and now my current Intel Mac Mini. I have this habit of reinstalling the OS, as well has having a multitude of partititions (all with their own version of Mac OSon the G4 Mini, I had a partition for Panther and one for Tiger) and yeah, I installed Photoshop on all of these partitions. It was just me and my one computer, right? So I figured it wasn't wrong to do it. When I got the "too many activations" message, I called up Adobe Support and explained my situation. I have nothing to hide. I offered to delete the copy of Photoshop off of the old G4 (I installed it when the Mini was in the shop and I was using it as a backup) but that didn't seem to be the main issue with the support person. She kept on talking about Parallels. "When you have Parallels," she said, "You can't have Photoshop on it too." Or she said something like that. I never really heard her entire line of reasoning, because I was too incredulous. I kept on interrupting and saying, "But Parallels is for Windows emulation! I have a Mac version of Photoshop! What does Parallels have to do with anything?" But she kept on going on (and on, and on) about Parallels, as if that were the culprit for my problems. It was very frustrating. I tried not to get angry or be rude with her, though. (I didn't think it would help anything! ) Anyway, she did (eventually) give me an activation number to get Photoshop working again, and told me that in the future I could deactivate my copy of Photoshop so I could move it to a new system. (I intend to buy a new Mac next month.) But my question is, what if something happens and I'm not able to deactivate Photoshop? Or what if (heaven forbid) I forget to deactivate it? I am guessing that after another phone call to Adobe, that they'll have mercy on me and let me activate, but this makes me a little nervous.
