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.

Or it could just be a modern pc hardware issue. I mean we were using pentium I class processors running at 150-230 mhz. Stuff that was designed to run dos/windows 95.

ssokolow mentioned FreeDOS does have issues running on virtual hardware. If your stuff runs fine I guess it's safe to assume FreeDOS works pretty fine on real hardware.

Next time I'll use a real PC.
