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.

Worlds fastest OS: ZDOS

How about ZDOS? It is more than 10x faster, minimum than other competitors. An 100MHz pc with ZDOS is faster than 1GHz pc with windows or linux. The ZBIOS boots in 0.055 secs, when a 166MHz Pentium does the same thing in 1.55 secs. (i believe)

Totally written in assembler. It is a 32 bit extension of MS-DOS.
