Linux "FreeDOS is a project which aims to recreate the magic of DOS and bring a truly free GPLed DOS encompassing all the characteristics of MS-DOS with lots of improvements thrown in. A couple of weeks back, FreeDOS developers released ver 1.0 of their OS. I downloaded the full CD ISO of FreeDOS from their website which was around 153 MB in size. Since I have been using Linux as my operating system, I decided to install and use FreeDOS inside Linux by means of an emulator. In the past, I have used Qemu to run Damn Small Linux on my Ubuntu machine. And I was pleased with its performance. So I decided to use Qemu to run FreeDOS as well."

LOL! All so true.

Although FreeDOS is a way better "dos" than MS-DOS, it's going some when a project like this is 10 times more stable than the real thing. Hehe, just goes to show that MS is crap.

Loved all your comment, BTW; especially the part about heartburn.
