FreeDOS

License Free
Abandonware No

FreeDOS is a GPL-licensed re-implementation of the DOS operating system intended for old computers and x86 emulators which don't provide their own internal DOS.

Most of the utilities it provides work perfectly well in DOSBox and it is an excellent source for useful commands like MORE which DOSBox doesn't provide.

Conclusion

  • Use utilities like MORE.EXE from FreeDOS as replacements for MS-DOS utilities like MORE.COM.
  • Install FreeDOS to C:\DOS to provide a more complete DOS experience.
