What Was The First Freeware Application?

Missile Command
PC-Talk
Prince of Persia
TeleType

Answer: PC-Talk

Although it certainly wasn’t the first application to be distributed free of charge, PC-Talk–the communications software designed by computer luminary Andrew Fluegelman in 1982–was the first application to actually be called freeware.

Originally a mix of open-source and user-supported code, PC-Talk was the proverbial forefather of the modern freeware/shareware distribution model.
