Roberto,

> con you compile kisscad for dos with freebasic dos compiler?

I don't know. FreeBasic can indeed compile for different platforms, but plain DOS doesn't have any graphics interface, so it would probably need some graphic package mounted on top of it.

Is anybody still using DOS??? I thought that I'm a dinosaur, because I used DOS for some purposes until around 2003!

No. I want to avoid a mess of many different versions showing up.

I made this program basically for my own use, and I'm happy to allow other people to use it too. But I don't intend to "serve customers" by preparing special versions, adding features I don't need, and so on.
