The difference between software for free and freeware?
But it is also important to know the difference between free software and freeware!
"Software for Free" is unfortunately mostly not freeware, the proportion of freeware is negligible to the total "free software"!
The freeware does not refer to software that everyone can download from the Internet and use for free. The title Freeware does not just exist and may not be used if it is not freeware.
Here for PC beginners, the freeware is not same titled with "Software for Free" and it's not the same thing. Even if freeware is completely free of charge, the conditions are somewhat stricter to be able to call your software Freeware!
If freeware is not in the foreground (or license), the "Software for Free" can be anything!
1.) The free software as freeware
1. All functions are free of charge
2. Freeware programs can be distributed free of charge
3. Has no advertising banners
4. Does not collect personal data
5. Funded only through donations
6. Free download
2.) Free software as adware
1. Adware is a computer application contains advertising
2. Not all features are free
click advertising necessary or € 1.99 for 2 ponies
3. Collect legal personal data on the PC with your consent
(if without your consent, then it is a trojan)
4.Can display advertisements in between
(but only with your consent)
3.) Free software as malware
Are trojans, virus, ransomware, ... etc., these are also free software
4.) Freeware suffers from the newly introduced term "free software"!
Unfortunately, many people think that "free software" is the same as freeware. The term "free software" is sometimes more expensive than full versions due to hidden costs, and sometimes Trojans. So that everyone downgraded the freeware to the new group "Free Software", even the magazine no longer use the term freeware because the freeware section would only come up with a few programs. And the freeware authors suffer because they are in this "Free Software" section!
If it says "Free software", then it is mostly not freeware!
So please don't forget! "Free software", free, "for free" can be anything and mostly it is not freeware, rather read in the license model, if not freeware, then it is 90% adware and?% Even malware
