Kind of commercial and free software

By | 14 April 2009

The commercial software on the net follows business models that can be resumed in these points:

trial: the product is offered for a limit of a time to “testing” it, at ends it stops to work or some features are reduced or disabled.

demo: the software is distribuited with some basic features, then it can be buyed the full version.

freeware: the software is freely distribuited, so the opposite of commercial software (shareware)

opensource software freeware distribuited with open code, so thats all can contribute to development of it or recompile for any purpose

donationware software mainly free where the author request a money contribute for the work done (generally you can decide if do it or not)

adware software that contains some kind of advertising
