From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Commercial software is computer software that is produced for sale[1] or that serves commercial purposes. Commercial software is most often proprietary software, but most well-known free software packages are commercial software, too.[2][3] All or parts of software packages and services that support commerce are increasingly made available as free software, including products from Red Hat, Apple Computer, Sun Microsystems, Google, and Microsoft Corporation. Microsoft Corporation uses "commercial software", to describe their business model.[4]
