Do you remember using a command line to start up a game? If you don’t know what MS-DOS is let me give you the run down. MS-DOS stands for Microsoft Disk Operating System, its uses command line interface for x86-based Personal Computers which is discontinued by Microsoft. It was first called 86-DOS (clone of Digital Research’s CP/M) by Seattle Computer Products written by Tim Paterson and the development took six weeks. Microsoft needed an operating system for IBM Personal Computers and hired Time Paterson in May 1981. Microsoft brought it for 75,000 and kept the version number and
renamed and licensed MS-DOS in 1981. The end Of MS-DOS is Windows versions Widows 9x – NT can’t not provide and cannot run DOS. However, it could be used to bootstrapping, troubleshooting and back compatibility and still use CONFIG.SYS on the startup menu. Let’s talk about MS-DOS games, you know play them on a CD or floppy disk and have to put in commands to start a game. Which are different category such as shareware (free of charge but encourage user to make copies), Trialware (built-in time limit) most of the games are demos and required you to buy them. I remember playing Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, Doom, Wolfenstein 3D, Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport, One Must Fall: 2097 and Sango Fighter that were the days. I remember going to a computer show and sale with my father to buy a disc that contain all these games. What are you favorite monuments in DOS era tell down below.
