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.

I like the work DOSCore is doing. Also following another 'distro' that has opted, instead, to use 4dos as its' command processor - LightDOS.

It's nice to see continued development in this area by both FreeDOS and 3rd-parties working on some fun solutions. Good interview by Jim Hall in that he continues to see the project moving forward - beyond fulfilling the original goals of DOS compatibility.
