    A computer program, which provides the instructions which enable the computer hardware to work.

    System software, such as Windows or MacOS, operate the machine itself, and applications software, such as spreadsheet or word processing programs, provide specific functionality.

    Software is often divided into two categories:
    # systems software : Includes the operating system and all the utilities that enable the computer to function.
    # applications software : Includes programs that do real work for users.
