Software and applications that will simply revolutionize your world

The term “software” was first used in 198 by John W. Tukey and was proposed by Alan Turing in an essay with his named “Computable Numbers” in 1935. The academic discipline of studying software is known as Software engineering or Computer Science engineering. Software is a collection of simple programs designed or programmed to serve specific operations.

This software makes our work easier for different applications. The three different devices involved are the programmer who develops the software, the hardware that acts as an interface between the user and the software and the end user itself. There may be different types of software depending on the end user’s use.

The different types of software can include the system software such as Windows, Linux, Macintosh operating systems. In addition, the system software can be classified as device drivers, servers, tools, and operating systems. This helps to coordinate between computer hardware, ie. the input devices – keyboard, mouse, output devices – screen, printers with the central processing unit calculating.

The operating systems are the ones that actually control the work of the computer. Another type of software is the programming software, which usually assists a programmer for programming purposes and makes it easy to write programs in a convenient and easier way. These may include compilers, interpreters, debuggers, linkers, and text editors.

The application software is the one that provides various application support to the end user, such as word processors from Microsoft Word, Open Office, ERP software, etc. The application software relies on a system software or operating system without which it cannot work on a computer. The mobile software is also a kind of application software that is run as mobile applications and is advantageous for the mobile user to perform various operations.

Typical applications can include industrial automation, business, telecommunications (including the Internet and other Internet-related operations), video games, education, databases, medical, mathematical, molecular modeling, decision making, simulation and spreadsheets, etc. In short, this makes our daily work easier in a long range of topics.

Software architecture is the architecture of the software in use, after which documentation of a software involves the information on how the software works and the content, which is useful for the end user for its use. Libraries support files that provide features and their functionalities, which may be included in another application. The operating system contains many libraries for standard software.

Since software is designed by different companies, there must be a standard that can point out the distinction that differentiates between the software maker and therefore different standards are maintained by the software maker. This is very important in the case of information exchange as the software standard indicates the sender or recipient. Computer software is stored or stored in the storage or computer memory and then executed or run. The execution refers to information or passage of instructions within the software executed by the system software that converts the instruction into machine codes and delivers to the hardware. Each instruction refers to the computer to perform certain operations such as calculation, data transfer, control flow change, etc.

Software licenses are provided to the software to have an anti-pirated environment and ensure the use of original software. Software comes in OEM licenses, freeware or free license or shareware. Software downloads are very common nowadays, there are many websites that offer this option to download different software according to user requirements. This is where the concept of licenses comes into place. Freeware or shareware versions are available for free, while you can also buy licensed software and download. Freeware gives the user the right to reuse and change the same.

The world is covered by a number of software companies in this industry, with the most profitable Microsoft with its owner Bill Gates being the richest person in 2009.
