The software are divided into two main categories i.e system software and application software. System software includes all the programs and softwares designed by the manufacturers to run the system. A computer system can't run without the installation of system software in the computer. System software includes operating system, windows, DOS etc. Application software in contrast to system software are user written applications and user defined programs for example Microsoft power point, word, excel, games, note pad and other applications. The functions and instruction are written by the user in the case of application software whereas instructions are pre-coded by the manufacturers in the case of system software. Both of them are integral parts of computer system.

The most common example of system software is the operating system while others include system drives, device and utility managers.

Hello. Honestly, I'm not particularly well versed in this topic myself. I remember that when I needed good and high-quality software, I bought it from this site. My friend recommended it to me when he found out that I needed software for my business. There are no complaints for six months everything has been working well
