As a software company, our parallel to the mouse is our customer and the cookie is some feature of our software. For Comecero it is invoicing. We created a module…

Word processors, games, personal accounting, contact managers, databases and more. Some turned into huge commercial successes.

In an attempt to generate a little revenue to support the ongoing development of these programs, some developers started introducing limitations into the products.
