    read quotes below

    if you buy flash 5 (full) you get mx free. that dosen't really make sense to me. if i buy a lower cheaper version i get the bigger better one free? (save $200)

    but that's what it says...

    anyways i'm getting the upgrade version

    Web Design Studio Macromedia Customers who purchased Web Design Studio on or between the dates of February 4, 2002, and July 14, 2002 (dates subject to change) are eligible for a free upgrade to Flash MX.

    Requests for free upgrades to Flash MX must be received by September 14, 2002.

    What exactly is an authorized Macromedia reseller? Does this include anybody selling Macromedia products legally?

    I am understanding that if I buy Flash 5 at full retail price before April 19 (~$330), I will be able to upgrade to Flash MX for free. Affirm or Reject my last statement and please help me understand the first two questions.

    Cheers!

    P.S. If I am correct in my understanding their upgrade policy, would it still be better to just buy Flash MX instead and forget about upgrading? If you get a free upgrade, does that include the Flash MX user guide?

    Buy old copy - Upgrade

    For the budget conscious:

    1. Buy an old copy of Flash 5 in eBay

    http://search.ebay.com/search/search...omedia+flash+5

    You can get a legal copy for about $100

    2. Buy the upgrade from Macromedia

    It beats the full retail price.

    McPollo-you be correct. You'd get it for free.

    This is very true. It's how I got to Flash 5 cheaply. Bought 4 on Ebay (Make sure it's commercial version) then upgraded to 5. Total Cost? =$250. Now I can goto MX for 200 more.

    heck, buy flash 3 on ebay for about 50 bucks and upgrade for 199. you can upgrade from ver 2-5, also, you can upgrade from the educational to commercial for the same 199.
    they are being quite generous.

    Thats great. Thanks for the advice. I would like to see what Flash 3 is all about!
