- Freeware is software that is available for free. This type of software is free to download, use and distribute without any cost. Here are some characteristics of freeware software:
- Free: Freeware software is available for free, which means you can use it without paying for it.
- Distribution: Authors of freeware software often allow it to be distributed without restrictions, meaning you can share it with others.
- License: Even though freeware software is free, it may have certain license terms that must be followed.
- Freeware software is different from open source software because with open source software, the source codes are usually available and can be modified and distributed at the same time. On the other hand, freeware software may not usually have source codes available and its distribution may be restricted by license terms.
