There seem to be a lot of people interested in, for whatever reason,
changing the definition of software. It originally meant the stuff that
isn't hardware (hence the term). Most people in Debian, it seems, still
use it that way. Possibly most people in the hacker community, as
Software does not have to be digital. Personally, I'd consider the data

 in the original sense, as well --- not to be confused with
