What is a Software?

Software is a general term for the various kinds of programs used to operate computers and related devices. It should be noted that although software is thought of as a program, it can be anything that runs on a computer.Software consists of carefully-organized instructions and code written by programmers in any of various special computer languages.

Software is often divided into application software (programs that do work users are directly interested in) and system software (which includes operating systems and any program that supports application software).
