Uhm... It was released under MS Research License, so it wouldn't be pirating if used in those limited ways the license permits (non-commercial, personal and research only). :)

Anyways, I don't see why some people don't like FreeDOS. It's more modern than the last version of MS DOS (not to mention the last commercial version), it comes with the tools that are mostly good enough (some a bit better, some maybe a bit worse) and generally does everything MS DOS does. :) So, if someone needs a DOS source, there is already one that is in good enough shape and works 99% of time. Not to mention it's available under an open license so you can distribute source, binaries and derivatives. :)
