Freeware is copyrighted computer software which is free without time limit, is different from shareware, which requires users to pay (eg after some trial period or for additional functionality). The free software developers often make a free tool "to be donated to the community", but also still wanted to retain their rights as a developer and have control over subsequent development. Sometimes when programmers decide to stop developing a product free tool, they will provide the source code to other programmers or distribute the source code to the public as free software.
