Consumer Software

Consumer softwareOn the other hand, given consumers at large prefer to still download copies of essential software, the development on this front has been relatively monopolized and gradual.

There are certain software programs however, that are considered crucial and in fact must-haves, without which most of the processes that hardware devices are used for would become worthless.

In the multimedia and professional context, these include Photoshop, Video Players, and music applications.

Office Applications

More commonly sought-after and in fact more essential to laptop users for instance though, are word processing programs, of which the Microsoft Word is the best-known.
