Eehm, about hundreds of thousands customized software manufactures 
around the whole globe?
Where not talking about off the shell software then of course, but for 
software used in a particular corner of a sector.
Most prominent types are administration software, although most of them 
have a common base, implementation differs on your type of: products, 
customers, location, law, quality and quantity . Say about everything it 
can differ, ie you don't want to use your high-school student 
administration program for a pet shop or a cheese manufacture.
