Shareware (also known as user supported software and other names) is a
concept not understood by everyone.

The authors of Shareware retain:

- all rights to the software under the copyright laws
- while still allowing free distribution.

This gives the user the chance to freely obtain and try out software to
see if it fits his needs.

Shareware is NOT the same as Public Domain software even though they
are often obtained from the same sources.

You can obtain shareware software for free from:

- From BBS (Bulletin Board Systems)
- Anyone who has a copy


Payment:
If you continue to use Shareware after trying it out, you are
expected to register your use with the author and pay a registration
fee.

In a nutshell, shareware is "try-before-you-buy" software.

What you get in return depends on the author, but may include:
- future enhancements
- a printed manual
- free updates
- telephone support
- etc.

Only by paying for the Shareware you use do you enable the Shareware
author to continue to support his software and create new programs.

Considering that the Shareware registration fees are almost always far
less than the purchase price of comparable commercial software it's
obvious that Shareware is a great bargain for everyone.



There are real advantages to you by using Shareware:

- You get to try out software.
- You test compatibility with your hardware.
- You ensure the software fits your needs before you buy.


The author saves the expense of:
- advertising
- packaging and
- distribution and passes the savings on to you.


Plus:

- most Shareware authors are much more accessible than commercial
software sources.

- your questions and suggestions are much more likely to be
responded to.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
