Trivia: Shelfware

Q. What is shelfware?

A. Software purchased on a whim (by an individual user) or in accordance with policy (by a corporation or government agency), but not actually required for any particular use. Therefore, it often ends up on some shelf.

Thanks to the New Hacker’s Dictionary for providing another humorous computer term.
