In general, the two main types of software are:

System Software: System software is responsible for managing and controlling the computer hardware and providing a platform for running application software. It includes operating systems, device drivers, firmware, and utility programs that help in managing computer resources, such as memory, disk storage, and peripheral devices. System software is essential for the overall functioning of a computer system.

Application Software: Application software refers to programs that are designed to perform specific tasks or applications for end-users. It includes a wide range of software applications, such as word processors, spreadsheets, web browsers, graphic design programs, video games, and database management systems. Application software is developed to meet the needs of users and provides them with tools and functionality to perform various tasks on a computer.

These two types of software work together to enable users to interact with computer systems and perform desired tasks efficiently.

There are two types of people - those who divide things into two types, and those who don't.
