Which is limited to 64 MB per task (maximum), which isn't a lot these days.

Are you really saying it's better (for you) than Win9x or eCS (OS/2) or DOSEMU or even VirtualBox?

I don't know why you hold out hope for a dead OS (specifically DR-DOS, since 7.03 was the last official major release way back in 1998/99 times).

FreeDOS with QEMM386 ... not sure if QEMM fully works there, but it was never truly designed to. Probably uses undocumented stuff (or rare bugs, who knows).

File a bug if you can prove it behaves differently. (At least two kernel devs did do some debugging for INTERLNK recently.)

So ask Matthias Paul! :-P :-D

"Just use FreeDOS (under DOSEMU, if needed)!"

Nope, sorry. Proprietary software isn't always forthcoming about where to find it, so I have no idea.
