crippleware

Software used to demonstrate how a program works, but severely limited in functionality. For example, the printing or saving functions might be missing, or a large logo and title might be printed in the middle of each page. A database package might be limited to 100 records. The user is able to see how the full program operates, but cannot use the program for any meaningful work. See trialware, shareware, freeware and wares.
