[Req] MS-DOS 2.02
Hey. I have been looking for MS-DOS 2.02 for quite some time. The Compaq version (screenshots) is found even on this forum.
Were there other versions 2.02, or just Compaq?
Can anyone share an image (Compaq 2.02 or another)?
I'm fairly certain that was just Compaq's version numbering. They numbered their early DOS releases a bit differently than others. In other words, that would probably be Compaq's second or third OEM release of DOS 2.00. Or to put it another way: Microsoft MS-DOS 2.00 [Compaq 2.02 OEM]. The primary differences would likely be in their IO.SYS/IBMIO.SYS and Compaq-specific bundled tools - the parts that OEMs customize.
Most others just kept calling it "2.00" with separate OEM revision numbers.
