I've got DOS Fever again and I'm playing around with the Dosbox for old games. As well as researching and trawling the net about everything DOS. Very interesting indeed.

Found this video and it was well enjoyed, so I've attached here, if anybody would also like a view.

To finish, looking at the video as anybody tried the FreeDos programme. Is it okay and is it any better than MS Dos? Your thoughts please.
Also stated was that Free Dos is similar to GNU and Linux components. What do you think. Does that mean then, that if you can run GPL on Linux, it may be possible to run GPL on FreeDos. I don't know? Or do I still have a lot to learn 😂🤣

Thanks for reading and I hope some of you will get afflicted (if not already) with the Dos fever 😃

Ah, DOS fever. Related to those other well-known maladies, autoexec-bat-itis and config-sys-ism. :woot:

Ah yes correct Saiph. I have the ECE variant 😃

Progressed to Win3.1 through Dosbox. Now running Grand Prix Manager from 1995. Happy days
