What are some synonyms for "software"?

Hi All,

It's not in any thesaurus. I have a number in mind, but thought I'd ask here for a few.

Any product you are expected to purchase and than to get it to work right you have to continue to pay for "upgrades" and you do not own what you pay for and by using said product you agree to any licensing agreements that you are not permitted to read until you have purchased it.

Oh, and "solution".

Apparently no one sells software or "products" anymore - they sell "solutions" (often available in several "form factors")
