WHAT DOES CRIPPLEWARE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Crippleware

Crippleware has been defined in realms of both software and hardware. In software crippleware "vital features of the program such as printing or the ability to save files are disabled until the user purchases a registration key. While crippleware allows consumers to see the software before they buy, they are unable to test its complete functionality because of the disabled functions." Hardware crippleware "is a hardware device that has not been designed to its full capability. The functionality of the hardware device is limited to encourage consumers to pay for a more expensive upgraded version. Usually the hardware device considered to be crippleware can be upgraded to better or its full potential by way of a trivial change, such as removing a jumper. The manufacturer would most likely release the crippleware as a low-end or economy version of their product." In hackers' jargon, an antifeature "is functionality that a technology developer will charge users to not include", for example copy-protection, and "Like blackmail, users can sometimes pay technology providers to not include an antifeature in their technology."...
