Stainless Software was a TI99/4 and 4a specific software publishing and distributing business run by Stephen Shaw from England.

Stainless distributed software from many prominent American sources (such as Not Polyoptics, Maple Leaf, Norton, PS Software and Pewterware) as well as many U K written programs by authors such as Patrick Strassen, Alexander McMath, Roland Trueman, Malcolm Adams and others).

Once TI withdrew from the market and module prices crashed, sales of tape software became difficult and the business somewhat petered out. Towards the end Stainless arranged with UK authors for as many titles as posible to be released to the freeware market and many were sold in America through Texaments.

Only one customer guessed the origin of the trade name used, a long forgotten UK comedian by the name of Stainless Stephen.
