  • Lessware is a type of software I run into on a regular basis. A big fan of open source software and freeware, I usually seek open source options for most new software needs.

    Freeware that turns out to be a lite version of more powerful, costly software is called lessware. I just now had an experience with an SEO-related WordPress plugin that turned out to be lessware. Lame!
