OSNews, Generic OSes MS-DOS is an old piece of work, a long line of operating systems dating back to the early '80s. First a stand-alone operating system, it would later work as a base for Windows, and starting with Windows 95, it became integrated with Windows and was no longer developed as a stand-alone operating system. To fill the gap the end of MS-DOS left behind, the FreeDOS project was started. Today, FreeDOS turned 15.

This always sounded interesting, and I've always wondered if it was feasable to say run DOSBox under it... Maybe even port to 64bit space, but use dosbox for old 32/64 compatability.

But then it's just my ramblings... FreeDOS has always been interesting to me but it's been the little dumb windows lacking stuff that's been.. nagging.
