    i'm new and hoping that some of you guys can help me..
    I need Illustrator and In-design for university purposes.. how can I get them?
    When I had just gotten my first MacBook I spoke to an Apple salesman asking how the VIRUS world worked on Mac.. he told me not to worry as long as I didn't download any Apple related programs such as iWork Adobe etc etc.. but I've heard that that's not quite true...
    So, how should I proceed?:confused: Please help!
    Thanks a lot

    You can get the academic versions of those applications. Ask your university, if they offer deals on that or contact Adobe. Trials can be downloaded from Adobe.

    The second part of your post either misses a negative or I'm missing it.

    In short, there are currently NO (ZERO) viruses for Mac OS X, only some trojans and other malware, but you have to install it yourself.

    Btw, if you speak of torrenting/pirating software ("iWork and Adobe products are not safe"):

    I think I used way back when I was in school, don't really remember since it was a long time ago. :eek:

    Ask your professor, they should know where to get it.

    As has been already posted, Adobe offers academic versions of it's software for quite reasonable prices. If you only need it for a short time, download the free 30 day trials, finish up your project within the month and it's free.

    If you are interested in pirated copies, this forum does not allow that kind of discussion (and Adobe copy protection is pretty good, even if someone were to help you find an illegal way to get full software, it has a tendency to be not trivially simple to get it running (or keep it running)). Buy academic, it's cheap and a fair price for some great products.
