    программное обеспечение (ПО)

    So if I just say П. О. then everyone will know I'm talking about software? I am trying to find the easiest way to say "software" in Russian, since I often have to use this word - and many Russians don't seem to understand the word "software". I just get blank kind of looks if I say "software".

    It's better to say just "софт". It's kinda slangish but very widespread and understandable by almost everyone.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Or you can say "программы". From the context it should be obvious that you say about "компьютерные программы".

    Especially when you talk to people who lack basic computer literacy or who are not up to date with modern slang (like older people).
    With others "софт" works just fine.
