  1. I know that this is a minor point, but software is a collective and continuous noun, as opposed to a discrete noun (which would have a plural. Apple is an example of a discrete noun). Hence there is no plural form of it, so “softwares” isn’t even a word. When I write blog posts I say, “pieces of software” if I need to make software plural. Likewise program is a word similar (almost synonymous with software) that has a plural form, programs.

      In my defense, the word “softwares” was not part of the original title of this article :).
      Please correct it as per Brenton’s suggestion.

      If you consider it such a minor point, Brenton Horne, why even bring it up? You, Sir, are a Grammar Nazi. :-)

      This is a techie site run and maintained by non-English speakers, not a grammar site run and maintained by Oxford English professors. If you read their articles, there are more grievous transgressions than ending a word with an unnecessary letter. The technical information provided by the articles loses no value because of the occasional grammar or spelling errors.

      • Gabriel A. Cánepa says:

        What do you mean by “ If you read their articles, there are more grievous transgressions than ending a word with an unnecessary letter“? Can you point out a few examples of such grievous transgressions?

        • dragonmouth says:

          “Can you point out a few examples of such grievous transgressions?”
          I’d rather not but since you asked…. As I said, Tecmint is a technology site, not a literary site. So to focus on grammar, spelling and/or syntax (other than in sample commands) would be distracting. However, it would make the articles easier to read/understand if they were posted in idiomatic English. It is obvious by the phraseology and syntax that most of the articles are written by non-native-English speakers. It has been suggested by a few readers in the past that Tecmint should use a native-English speaker to edit the articles. The response to these suggestions has been a deafening silence. The users were not told that “We are working on it” or “We will not not do it because………………”, they were just ignored.

          Again I wish to reiterate that the value of the technological information overrides and shortcomings in the language.

            Thank you for pointing this out. If you find grammar or any other type of errors under articles written by me, I will be more than glad to be corrected. I don’t have much of a choice as to the title since that’s the prerogative of the owner of this blog. But I am open to corrections and suggestions to improve.
            I was thinking that by grievous transgressions you mean serious errors in the content itself. Thanks again for your well-thought comment.

      • Brenton Horne says:

        Yes I am a grammar Nazi, only mentioned it because I run a blog too and if I made a mistake like this I’d like to think someone would correct me. Besides if it is not corrected odds are the same mistake will be made again, learning can only happen if people are corrected when they make mistakes.

        • Gabriel A. Cánepa says:

          I don’t think you’re a grammar Nazi. I appreciate you taking the time to point out that typo. Besides, you were very polite when you did so. So thank you! And feel free to continue doing so.
