Do it really need to be MS-DOS? Because you can try FreeDOS. It's mainly the same thing, and it's also free. If you want to give it a try, you can find it here



How similar & compatible is MSDOS compared to FreeDOS?

They say it's 100% compatible.

You guys obviously have no idea that almost any manufacturing business still heavily depends on MS-DOS.


:yes:

Even programmable mills that come out today still use DOS and software written for DOS :whistle: .

MS-DOS 6.22 is still protected by copyright laws. Therefore, distributing copies is illegal.


The link is directly to a Microsoft server, therefore you can safely assume that Microsoft has no issue with you downloding a copy.

Either that, or someone at MS messed up.... I doubt its that though as the link is still live after 12 months...

It is not entirely 100% compatable with MS-DOS.

The link in question points to an update for licensed users of certain previous versions of MS-DOS. Therefore, using it as a full version is illegal.
