Software distributed free of cost, usually without any printed manual, warranty, or upgrade option. Although its copies may be freely redistributed (without any charge or fee), its copyright remains with the original writer or publisher. Most freewares are relatively small utility programs but some (such as Adobe's Acrobat Reader) are full fledged programs or (such as Sun Microsystems Star Office) are complete software suites. See also shareware.
