I'm looking to buy Creative Suite; 5, 5.5, or  6.

Support is an issue with these old but still useful versions of Adobe product.

 

However, If someone already has 5, 5.5, and 6, I thought to myself, what if updating patches could be bought rather then straight out denied?

 

Your thoughts please

In short, don't even think about this. Don't say we didn't warn you.

 

If you're thinking second hand, that

In my opinion it is pointless to discuss what if. Such old applications are only partially compatible with the new version of the operating system and this compatibility becomes less and less as time goes on.
Adobe has discontinued and will not resume support for these products.

 

My System: Intel i7-8700K - 64GB RAM - NVidia Geforce RTX 3060 - Windows 10 Pro 22H2 -- LR-Classic 13.3.1 - Photoshop 25.9.1 - Nik Collection 7 - PureRAW 4 - Topaz PhotoAI 3

If you're thinking second hand, that ship has also sailed. To be legal that would require formal transfer of ownership, but I cannot imagine they will still do that for 12-15 year old software.
