After messing about last night on my pc with my old dos games and dosbox/defend reloaded front end. Plus a little general reading about dos on Wikipedia. Reflected in the video below.

Above Info on CP/M and MSdos with Gary Kildall involvement. IBM and Microsoft early history of PC development. From computer Chronicles. 90's programme. Very interesting.

Plus Computer Chronicles programme on the birth of Win 98
