23 Years of FreeDOS

On June 29th, 2017, FreeDOS turned 23 years old. There’s nothing special about "23," but I thought it would be great to celebrate the anniversary by having a bunch of past and current users share their stories about why they use FreeDOS. So, I made a call for users to write their own FreeDOS stories.

These stories are written from different perspectives, such as: "How did you discover FreeDOS?" "What do you use FreeDOS for?" and "How do you contribute to FreeDOS?" In short, I requested users to answer the question: "Why FreeDOS?"

This eBook contains the voices of many of the users who contributed their stories, as well as the history of FreeDOS. Many individuals have helped make FreeDOS what it is, but this eBook represents only a few of them. I hope you enjoy this collection of 23 years of everything FreeDOS!

You can find the free ebook at 23 Years of FreeDOS (ebook) on the FreeDOS website.

Thanks to Lauren Holly, Ben Norrman, and Shane Rose for serving as co-editors on the ebook. And special thanks to Shane Rose for the ebook design.
