Explanation:
out of the box = ready to use, as is, straight from the box. Aucun effort additionnel de la part de l'acheteur n'est nécessaire. (Sens pris d'une série discussions sur la liste Lantra)

"Out of box fonctionality" means that the software is functional without complicated setup.


Explanation:
Essentially, install the software (easy installation implied), and it is ready to do whatever it is designed to do. Some software require lengthy configuration where all kinds of parameters have to be entered. THis is not the case for this one. If this were a mechanical device, an equivalent would be "no assembly" required".
I hope this helps.
