FreeDOS 1.1 released – nostalgia

Remember the days of DOS gaming, piles of floppy disks, messing around to get your 14.4k modem working?

No, this is not FreeBSD related, but I though you may be interested to hear that the FreeDOS is not dead. 5 years after the 1.0 release an update (1.1) has come out.

Did you know FreeDOS is still used by OEMs as optional installations?

FreeDOS is a free DOS-compatible operating system for IBM-PC compatible systems. FreeDOS is made of up many different, separate programs that act as “packages” to the overall FreeDOS Project.

    Just wanted to clear up something. The FreeDOS 1.1 release is a “test” release. This is a beta or rc, rather than a final release. Since it’s FreeDOS it’s probably stable and completely usable anyway.
