"Freeware" is a book by Rudy Rucker, published in (18 years ago), published work.
Freeware is software that is available for use at no monetary cost, but with one or more restricted usage rights such as source code being withheld or redistribution prohibited. Freeware is in contrast to commercial software, which is typically sold for profit, but might be distributed at no cost for a business or commercial purpose in the aim to expand the marketshare of a "premium" product. According to the Free Software Foundation, "freeware" is a loosely defined category and it has no clear accepted definition, although FSF says it must be distinguished from free software. Well known examples of closed-source freeware include Adobe Reader and Skype.
