Too right. All you crack heads are forgetting one thing; this is an entry level unit. For sure it will be based on DR-DOS. The only thing holding the show up is trying to find a dev who still remembers it. Oh, and finding the 5 1/4" install floppies and a drive to read them with.

The nerd humour is of course side-splittingly hilarious, as always, and it's no wonder we IT types get all the hot tottie, but seriously - take it somewhere else, please.

in spite of acid protests i will say you make the same mistake as kc. knowing hk i predict unlikely it will be any more than cpm with 8" floppy.

Don't you hate it when someone is talking about one of your favourite subject but you can't give any input because they are talking about stuff from before you were born?
