OSNews, Generic OSes FreeDOS - the drop-in, open source replacement for MS-DOS - was started after Microsoft announced that starting from Windows 95, DOS would play a background role at best for users. Almost two decades later, FreeDOS has survived and, as its creator explains in the interview, is still being actively developed, despite achieving its initial aim of an MS-DOS compatible OS, which quite frankly is somewhat amazing.

Used it

Used it a few times, mostly in VMs and just to recover old stuff or play old DOS-based games. Works well enough. Hadn't got used to the extensions, though, as I hadn't needed them [yet].
