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.

congratulations on 15 years of development. To bad many of the projects that were actively developped have stopped like SEAL and Cude (Gui's. also is open GEM still being developed?), mpxplay (audio player), and a few others. Though I must say, I am anxiously awaiting the 1.1 version. If anyone has any experience in pascal I might be willing to resurect my attempts at creating a nice GUI for FreeDOS.
