How (and why) FreeDOS keeps DOS alive
By Thom Holwerda, submitted by Rohan Pearce on 2016-07-13 23:23:56

From a great interview with JImm Hall, founder of FreeDOS:

Hall said there are three key categories of people who use FreeDOS: People looking to run classic DOS games, businesses that need to support legacy applications and developers building embedded systems.

FreeDOS is a great project. DOS is still in use all over the place, and having it still actively developed means it'll be around for years to come.
