  • Cool stuff. I always found it interesting how much beta testing they did on DOS 5. DOS 4.00 probably wasn't even tested at all. :P And earlier DOS releases were usually left to OEMs to customize and test.

    A lot of things were changing direction back then, and with DOS 5, MS was really getting serious about DOS and Windows.

    The DOS 5 betas were so widely spread on BBSes, even a nobody like myself encountered them.

    Thanks for pointing these out.
  • I never actually used DOS 5. I went from 4.01 to 6.22.
  • FILE MANAGER from MS-DOS 5.00.224 BETA :)
