bundled software

Software that is sold with a computer or other hardware component as part of a package. As competition between computer manufacturers has intensified, bundling software has become a key strategy for attracting consumers. In some cases, the bundled software is even more valuable than the hardware.

Bundled software can also be part of a software package. For example, Microsoft Windows comes with many bundled software tools.
