FreeDOS is Not Dead!
What is “FreeDOS” you say? Well, as it’s name implies, it is a free and Open Source version of the old, venerable DOS that we all used to love/hate! Microsoft long ago threw in the towel on DOS, but there are some old “die-hards” out there that still run it. FreeDOS has provided a free and open version for us “old fogies” to use when necessary… but there was a rumor of late that FreeDOS has died unceremoniously and was no more! Au contraire!
It seems not only that the project is continuing, they are getting ready to release the “1.0” version, a milestone in most Open Source projects! Hooray for FreeDOS!
