Out of curiosity how many folks have a machine running MS-DOS currently? Any of the original versions.. No DOS-BOX or such.. just Microsoft. If so, what are you using it for? I miss it for sure. It just struck me that someone may still be using a copy of it for some reason
I plan on offering traditional phone lines this year, glad to know that some people are still doing it old school :)
Yeah, it does support downloading, but only Xmodem and YModem. Michael Brutman >did say he would consider adding the feature if enough people requested it but >I don't think anyone other than me has. Trouble is, many BBS's these day's only
have Zmodem and/or URL download. Xmodem isn't available on many BBS's these
I just realized I posted an empty reply. Sorry about that. I am currently running MSDos 6.22 as a virtual machine with a pile of dos applications, that have issues running through Mono or Wine. Sadly some of these programs were never ported to window/linux.
I'm still using MS-DOS daily. I use it mostly for text entry, calculations ect. I like the reliability and stability of DOS and it's something that grew on me years ago and I have kept it. I find I like it better for distraction free work, and I like the retro aspect of running it.
One of the palmtops is always with me and is used daily. I like it so well that I have 2 spares.
I did not realize that DOS would run on small appliances like palmtops.
I always figured they used some proprietary OS. That is pretty neat.
