freedos 1,2 it' out (Announce)

posted by Rugxulo(R) Homepage, Usono, 31.12.2016, 20:16

Anyone willing to try DOSEMU2 pre-release with FD 1.2? I don't have any ideal setups (still have old Ubuntu 14.04 USB jump drive with older DOSEMU), but perhaps I'll wipe that and make a Fedora liveUSB one of these days.

Just to state the obvious, it's free and supports LFNs, multitasking, and full USB. Otherwise, what can you do? I guess you could buy online ROM-DOS 7 (LFNs) or DR-DOS 7.03 (real pre-emptive multitasking but limited to 64 MB per task). Or buy Win9x or eCS (obviously, and I feel like I shouldn't have to remind anyone of that).

And if you want LFN support in basic tools, use DJGPP 2.05's CoreUtils (aka, File- Text- Shell-).

Anyways, even without all of that boring modern fluff :-D , I'm impressed by the work done by Jim, Jerome, Mateusz, et al. We should be heavily grateful for all of their work.
