What is software?

Software is the information stored on the computer.That is to say,Software is the programs, so programs and data are considered to be software. Basically, if you can email it to someone, it's software.

Software is a collection of instructions that enables a user to interact with the computer or have the computer perform specific tasks for them. Without any type of software the computer would be useless. For example, you wouldn't be able to interact with the computer without a software operating system. Almost all software purchased at a retail store is included in a box similar to the one shown to the right, this box usually contains all the disks (floppy diskette, CD, and/or DVD) required to install the program onto the computer, manuals, warranty, and other important documentation.
