  9. 9. APPLICATION SOFTWARE<br />THIS ARE PROGRAM THAT PEOPLE USE TO GET THEIR WORK DONE.<br />
  10. 10. CATEGORY OF SOFTWARE<br />PROPRIETARY- THIS IS PROTECTED BY LAWS, IT WAS OWNED BY A PARTICULAR PERSON OR GROUPS OF PERSON.<br />OPEN SYSTEM OR OPEN SOURCE- THIS CAN BE MODIFIED, NOT EXCLUSIVE PROPERTY OR PARTICULAR VENDOR.<br />
  11. 11. Freeware<br /> Freeware is also downloadable in the Internet and free of charge. Often freeware is only free for personal use, while commercial use requires a paid license. <br />
  12. 12. SHAREWARE<br />THIS SOFTWARE IS DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE INTERNET. LICENSES DIFFER, BUT COMMONLY THE USER IS ALLOWED TO TRY THE PROGRAM FOR FREE, FOR A PERIOD STIPULATED IN THE LICENSE, USUALLY THIRTY DAYS. AT THE END OF THE TRIAL PERIOD, THE SOFTWARE MUST BE PURCHASED OR UNINSTALLED.<br />
