Comment FreeDos is not DOS (Score 1) 211

Lord knows no one but me cares, but FreeDOS is not always a good substitute for DOS. I had to work around a BIOS upgrader that insisted on a good battery in a laptop, even when the laptop was plugged in. The workaround involved running the installer from a DOS boot drive, and FreeDOS didn't work. I had to scrape up a Win98/DOS boot drive, but at least I could boot from USB, so I didn't have to go back all the to cave drawings (or floppies).
