freeware : shareware ?
the program (the software) is free of charge, you don't have to pay to use it (I will accept donations of any kind). I don't take any
warranty, you are using the software at your own risk. The rights (the copyright) belongs to me. So if you want to redistribute
my software in any way (website, cdrom, books, etc.) you have to ask me.
a small version of the program (the software) is free of charge (trial, demo, etc.) so
you can try it before buying it. So you can see if: it works, you like it, it does what you expect, etc. After
you have tested the software (and you are satisfied), you buy it. As with freeware all the rights (the copyright) belong to me and
redistribution in any way needs my permission.
this is my understanding of freeware btw. shareware, if you think you have to comment it write to:
