Types of Computer Software

Way back in 1946, a German engineer by the name of Konrad Zues developed the world’s first computer programming language called Plankalkül while hiding in the Bavarian Alps waiting for the war to end. Among other uses, Konrad used this table and data structure on his Z3 computer as a chess opponent. You can’t help but wonder if Konrad would feel at ease today with all of the different types of computer software available, or would he go back up into the mountains, play chess and hide from the world.

No matter what your goals, no matter what you’re trying or want to do with your computer (or what you want your computer to do for you), it’s almost certain that there are a variety of different computer software programs to get your project done. One of the most popular software categories of the day is the type that protects your computer from viruses, as just the thought of a virus attacking and impairing your computer from use is enough to make anyone cringe. Anti-Virus software comes in all different shapes, sizes and price points, each offering protection from a vast array of worms, spyware, Trojan horses, as well as the latest in the virus spectrum.

On a more blissful note, graphic software is still one of the most popular categories for computers and keeps getting better all the time. So whether you’re interested in creating animated webpages on your site, drawing your own graphics for your business, or you want to be able to get the red eye out of your family’s vacation photo’s, there’s sure to be an ample supply of graphic software to suit your needs.

For those that want to eliminate the need for a CPA in their personal life or business, there is plenty of accounting software options available to help you with this task. From personal and business income tax preparation, to accurate time card records, to in-depth inventory capabilities and more, you can easily turn your books from being “in the red” to black as quickly as you’d like.

Don’t forget about spam solution, mail management and contact management to name just a few of the latest business software programs out there to help your company run smoothly.

One important point to keep in mind while shopping for software, What good would even the best software at the cheapest price do if the customer service you receive is less than adequate? Be sure that the computer software provider of choice has qualified employees that can answer any question or solve any problem that you may encounter. Of course, a guarantee to make sure that you’re completely satisfied with your purchase is just one way a quality company will let you know that they actually care about you and appreciate your business.
