    trail version means software that's fully functioning but only for a short/limited period of time?

    shared version means some part of the software lacks the function of full version?

    Hi,
    Shareware needs to be paid for, trial is as you describe. If you are looking for good, legal freeware (no limitations) there are excellent independent reviews at Tech Support Alert:
    http://www.techsupportalert.com/

    If you are looking for freeware that runs from portable devices (USB) there are tons of progs reviewed at this independent site. Also includes users' comments:
    http://www.portablefreeware.com/about.php

    They also discuss 'nagware' as well.
    Hope these are of interest?
