Freeware means that a program or system is available without charge for an unlimited amount of time. This is in contrast to commercial software, where you must pay to get the …software, or shareware, where you may have a trial period of a certain amount of time or have features removed.
One example of freeware is the web browser you're using. Firefox,Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome are all considered freeware.

Some code has been made publicly available, on the license that those that distribute it are not allowed to charge for it. Most well known is the "GNU" license. if you copy th…is code, and compile it for e.g. Windows, you are not allowed to charge for anything. You can only charge for adaptations of this. Most of the applications that run on Linux comes free of charge, but where special adaptations have been made, those that made the adaptations can charge and limit distribution. But just recompiling for Windows is not enough, something must be added. Other Freeware is original code, and are paid for by adverts. Another variant is to provide a minimum functionality, and then you have to pay to get the "full" version. Typical here are the "free" virus scanners - distribute them "free" creates a market and reputation, then they can charge for "corporate" license with the only change being that the sysadm is notified when a virus is detected.
Freeware is a software that is made for free and it is not always as great as the software that you would pay for.
