Although the Pardus project aims to disseminate free and open source software, it also includes free and non-open source software, which can be easily used by the end user. We define such software as proprietary software. Proprietary software is computer software released under a license that restricts use, operation, or redistribution. 

Examples of these proprietary software that many of us use are given below. All of these software are available in the Pardus Software Center and you can easily download them.
