OSNews, Generic OSes FreeDos has been declared dead, and the homepage been moved to Sourceforge. From the FreeDos.org site: "On 28 June 1994, the project that became FreeDOS was announced to the world. It's 12 years later, we still haven't reached "1.0", and there's no sign of getting there anytime soon. I have given up. I've stopped waiting for "1.0". FreeDOS is dead." You can still see the message if your DNS servers haven't been updated yet.

I think Dosbox uses FreeDOS for some things.

There is quite a lot of FreeDOS in DOSBox and the author(s) of DOSBox also states so.

So in a way FreeDOS still lives on.

Maybe there's some code from FreeDOS used in DOSbox, but as far I remember, actual FreeDOS is being used in DOSemu...
