Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Shareware Day

#SharewareDay was started to remind users of freeware and shareware programs of the value they have gained by using these free programs and potentially inspire them to share the love and show their appreciation to the programmers and developers that made it possible.

The first piece of software called ‘freeware’ was PC-Talk, a telecommunications programme created by Andrew Fleugelman in 1982, while the term ‘shareware’ was first used with the programme PC-Write (a word processing tool), released by Bob Wallace in early 1983.
