The only technical reason for him not continuing to develop 4DOS is some relocation limit, from what I've heard him say.

And I'm not sure why he still holds grudges against some people, particularly Eric Auer, who never did anything to him (as far as I know). Eric is a very nice person, and FreeDOS users owe a lot to him, probably more than anybody else. But anyways, I'm not mad at Lucho, just don't understand his positions sometimes. (Besides, I think his site still claims some problems building with OpenWatcom 1.8, so it's still stuck to MSVC + MASM, I think, ugh.)
