General purpose software is software that people put out that has as wide a range of tools to help adapt to the person as possible hoping that the person will like it as packaged software such as Microsoft is usable for everyone. Custom written software is for people with needs different than normal people. Say I run a business, but it is an odd business and I need different functions I can get a program written for me with those functions although it might be slightly more costly.

Perhaps this?

A general purpose software is an application software design for users who want to perform common task on a computer system. e.g Ms Office, Mavis beacon, CorelDraw , and the like.anyone who wants to create a letter, edit a picture can use Ms Word and CorelDraw or Photoshop. These softwares are programmed to solve users common tasks (General tasks).

Special software package are developed specially for a user using high level programming language. e.g. A Database Management software designed for BARCLAYS BANK (customer credits and debits stuffs) will be of no use to SDA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL which will be so much interested in students examination reports/results. Specialized application softwares are also called customised packages.
