One of the most historically important artifacts to come from the home computer telecommunications revolution was shareware CDs, compact discs put out by companies containing hundreds of megabytes of shareware. Initially containing less than the full capacity of the discs (600mb, later 700mb) these items eventually began brimming with any sort of computer data that could be packaged and sold.

This is a wide and variant collection of CD-ROM based software, that is, software that came on a CD-ROM for installation on computers, or played in consoles. Ranging from applications and games to gatherings of public-domain software or clip art, the heyday of the CD-ROM is roughly 1989 to 2001. In all cases, the capacity of the CD-ROM stayed steady at 640-700mb a side, although some used tricks to claim they had more (due to compression, or adding up both sides of two-sided CD-ROMs). Most are...

"Doom WAD is the default format of package files for the video game Doom or its sequel Doom II, that contain sprites, levels, and game data. WAD stands for "Where's All the Data?" Immediately after its release in 1993, Doom attracted a sizeable following of players who created their own mods for WAD files—packages containing levels, graphics and other game data—and played a vital part in spawning the mod-making culture which is now commonplace for first-person shooters....

After the dawn of CD-ROMs, packed-in CD-ROMs (and later DVD-ROMs) expanded out into lauded utilities and games, and also included drivers, demos, promotional material (including game trailers), and ultimately could be entire...

Adventure Game Studio is an open source game-making tool for creating point-and-click graphic adventures in the tradition of Sierra and LucasArts titles like Space Quest and The Secret of Monkey Island. The first version was created by Chris Jones in the late 1990s, and as it was developed and expanded in the years that followed, a community grew that created hundreds of AGS games.

Programs, textfiles, and later images, sound and moving image data would be collected in the course of computer ownership and maintenance. Over time, this collection would sometimes resemble a pile, or a library, or an archive. The unifying theme would only be that they were all on the...

Throughout the lifespan of CD-ROMs, a number of groups and teams throughout the world have sought to remix or modify software to allow it to be compiled in large numbers, allowing markets and locations lacking any other software distribution the tools to use their sometimes-out-of-date systems. Occasionally, these teams had branding and the cd-roms were created during "ghost shifts" of overnight hours of CD-ROM duplicators.
