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.

FreeDOS is indispensable for me as it is used to boot the "swiss army tool", DFSee by Jan van Wijk, everytime there is trouble with disks, partitions, or file systems. Best known in the eComStation (aka OS/2) community, DFSee does its magic for other OSs, too.
