What is True Freeware?

 

I look to more experienced people for good definitions.

 

Scott at FreewareArena says:

 

* - Is it NOT shareware, a trial,a demo, contain spyware, or contain adware that is intrusive << These are the key initial tests, if any of these are failed, I go no further with the program/app.

For as I have repeatedly stated since 1997 on this site, I am NOT anti shareware or other 'wares' wherein the developer(s) seek renumeration for their original works, that is their choice, I merely reflect that this is a freeware only site. And in that, listings on FreewareArena are arrived at to reflect such.

  • - Does the program/app do what is "claims" to do.
  • - Does it peform the previous requirement effectively in my testing.
  • - Is it majorly error/bug free (if not 100%); this is to say that it is not impossible for another user to possibly encounter errors or such on their system depending on various factors and variables.
  • - Also, does the program overtly and blatantly "rip-off" another program. I don't mean does it do very similarly what another program does, but rather is it the SAME as another program save for perhaps a different graphic/logo or other tiny "alteration" I have no tolerance for plagarism.

 

Again, these are the initial and basics that I use as a guide for what may eventually be listed. And I provide this so as to inform potential submitters of programs/apps, so as to not waste their valuable time that could be best served submitting their programs to a site that has different criteria.
