Freeware is a word formed by combining two separate words: “free” and “software”. Freeware is free software that is made available for use with no time limit.
Although freeware is without cost and can be used for a limited time there usually are some kind of usage restrictions such as free only for academic, non-commercial or personal use while there is a fee for commercial use usually with a few extra features.
