I see the TPA being irrelevant wrt software:
"The supplier must be able to give the buyer clear title (that is, the
absolute right to own the product, without fear of a previous owner
claiming it as theirs)."
I don't know of any software, certainly no operating system software that
provides "clear title"; it's always "licenced". Even the BSD licence is
still a licence.
Also the TPA does not apply if "they [the goods or services] must not be
used up in commercial production or in repairing other goods." So using
any software for production of other siftware precludes the TPA.
but then IANAL :)
