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.

Really? When did you last try it. I had our custom embedded system working on it ten years ago, working better on free dos than it did on the commercial dos clone it was written for. (I never convinced management to switch, though)
