Screenshots from FreeDOS 1.2

I hope you've had a chance to download the new FreeDOS 1.2 distribution. I am very excited for the new release. I hope you enjoy it!

If you are new to FreeDOS, I wanted to share a few screenshots of some applications running on FreeDOS 1.2. All screenshots captured by me with FreeDOS 1.2 running in the GNOME Boxes PC emulator (which is really QEMU).

But you don't have to run FreeDOS only in text mode. We provide several graphical desktop environments, too. Here are a few samples.




Many people like to use FreeDOS to play classic DOS games. We provide a few open source DOS games for you in FreeDOS 1.2.



You can also install and play your favorite classic DOS games on FreeDOS. Here are a few favorites of mine:

Jill of the Jungle, a side-scroller run-and-jump game (shareware)

Commander Keen, another side-scroller run-and-jump game (shareware)

Dark Forces, a first-person shooter set in the Star Wars universe (LucasArts)
