sticky software

sticky software
n.
Software that users stick with over the years because the programs fulfill a need or perform a service.
Example Citation:
"I've been talking about 'sticky software' for years. By that, I mean those relatively few programs that really stick to our hard disks — the ones we don't install, rave about, gradually cool on, and finally wipe off the disk. From my observations, I think PointCast is becoming the poster child for nonsticky software in the nineties." — Jim Seymour, PC Magazine
