OSNews, Generic OSes No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - we have actually have not one, but two news items on hobby/small operating systems on the same day! You thought the day would never come again, but hey, here we are. You're welcome. Now, what are we talking about? FreeDOS - a test release has been, uh, released for FreeDOS 1.1.

Now? I have to admit I have no real * practical* use.. other than the grid 286 laptop I have for running ancient games on. Its the one platform I have that's incapable of a linux install.


Heh, I'm surprised no one nagged you to try ELKS (or even Minix 2.0.2). But even a lot of DOS software needs 386+ these days. It's somewhat painful trying to find useful, working 16-bit only software. Be sure to join the mailing list if you need any help.
