Sign up for a class at the local junior college, say a Photoshop class. Go to the bookstore with your new student ID, and lo and behold! Adobe Web Collection (Illustrator 9.0, Photoshop 6.0, GoLive5.0, and LiveMotion) for only $299! (compare with $999 at adobe.com). The little guy now has a fighting chance.
And, if you actually get an educational license while you're in school, by the time you graduate you can get an upgrade package which (I think) comes with the regular licensing terms.
I'd personally like to see Adobe start a "make your own bundle" offer. All of their existing software bundles includes at least one program I don't want... PageMaker (prefer InDesign) or Illustrator (prefer Freehand) for example.
Hehe... I'd go back to school to get an educational price "make your own" Adobe software bundle.
