I didn't refer to any exotic/experimental/toy DOSes, but to those DOSes which are intended to be actually used, not only tested/tried. To be more explicit I have enough experience with any of MS-DOS, FleaDOS, DR-DOS and PC-DOS, and limited experience with PTS-DOS and ROM-DOS. But by simply pointing to a heterogeneous list of software you convince no one neither that there will be a DOS better than MS-DOS 7.10, nor that such a DOS already exists. And there is no need to test exhaustively (i.e., in all possible situations, which is practically impossible) an OS in order to see how well it works.
