OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

FreeDOS files are updated regularly, the latest on April 19, 2010. But there hasn't been a major version release since Sept 2006.


This doesn't surprise me at all; it is used by a lot of companies and organizations that would otherwise have to depend on a 15-year-old copy of MS-DOS 6.22. Platform stability would be very important. Besides, it's DOS -- not much more to improve upon! ;P

Thank you for the list, by the way. I see several that I've played with too.
