The other main use of "shrink wrap" that I've seen was for software
that you could use with any computer based on a certain operating
system, without "opening the shrink wrap and customizing the software
for that particular platform". I believe that this came from UNIX
before the OS became as "standard" as it currently is; as a result,
you couldn't create a single UNIX version that could run on any
version of the OS, and thus you couldn't shrink wrap the software.
