Sorry, you're way off. You should have read the article better. We're not talking about MS-DOS, we're talking about GNU/DOS 2006 (FreeDOS). It's compatible, but that's about it. No MS-DOS code, I think.

We're talking about Linux, you're talking about *nix. ;)

There are several server packages for it, some a lot better than others. Check for example:

When I referenced Linux and *nix, was a metafore... apples and pears? He was talking about DOS, but FreeDOS is different beast. It's compatible, but that's it.
