Guest post: FreeDOS and MultiOS

Marti Van Lin answered the FreeDOS Blog Challenge earlier this month with his story about FreeDOS: DOS for the 21st Century.

Marti's story really begins when he started using PC emulators to run older, classic operating systems like MSX2 and Commodore-Amiga. From there, Marti found FreeDOS.

I love that Marti uses FreeDOS to run lots of great DOS software like dBASE and WordPerfect. But Marti adds, "That doesn't mean that FreeDOS is old school only, to the contrary. It's a modern OS with support for multimedia an networking, including DHCP. Such in contrast to MS-DOS."

Thanks, Marti!
