The software also called computer program is a series of instructions that controls or tells the hardware of the computer how to process the data you entered and turn it to information. For example, some instructions direct the computer to save or delete information in the computer. Before a computer can execute a task the instructions in the software must first be loaded into the memory of the computer. Then also we have what is called Shareware, is actually a software that is distributed free on a trial basis with the understanding that the user may need or want to pay for it later. Some developers do offer a shareware version of their software program with an expiry date built-in.
Again we have another software with the name Liteware, is a term for software that distribute freely in a version having less capability than the full for-sale version. It’s usually to provide a potential customer with a sample of the ‘’look-and-feel’’ of a product and a subject of its full capability. Third, on the list we have another software called Freeware, is a programming that is offered at no cost and is a common class of small applications available for downloading and use in most operating systems.
Nest on the list we have another software called Public domain software, with this particular software the programs that are not copyrighted because their authors intended to share them with everyone else who is in the public domain. The programs in the public domain can be used without restriction as components of other programs. When using such code, it is good to understand its history so that you can be sure it really in the public domain.
My last on the list is another software called Open source software, they refer to any program whose source code is made available for use or modification as users or other developers see fit. They are usually developed as a public collaboration and made freely available.
I believe this article has served as information on education to types of software components we have. Don’t forget to like, share and comment your questions as well.
