Shareware, freeware, and public domain software

In this appendix, we've identified and provided brief descriptions of specific programs that, in our opinion, rank as the “best of breed” in their respective categories. Public domain and freeware programs may be used completely free of charge.

Shareware programs may also be used that way. But shareware is “software on the honor system.” If you like and regularly use a shareware program, you are honor-bound to pay the requested registration fee. The cost is usually between $15 and $40, and registering the program may even entitle you to technical support from the programmer who created it (not something one should expect anytime soon from Microsoft or Apple!).
