Thanks a lot Jim, for pointing this out, because there was quit some
confusing, at least I was confused :-)

There's nothing wrong about being skeptical. FreeDOS is a Free Software
project and being Free (as in free speech) is one of its greatest strengths.
I think your skepticism is very much appreciated by the FreeDOS
community. Pleas keep it that way ;-)
Thanks for your great contribution!
I'm currently testing and I'm very much impressed by your great work so
far. If I'm finished, I will write a review on my osgeex blog.
Don't you get me wrong, I only write reviews on osgeex if the software
is worth it. I'm not going to waste my time, energy and bandwidth on
I will inform Thom Holwerda of http://osnews.com as well.
Once again: *Gratias* for your great work!
... A huge FreeDOS fan and Free Software "Zealot" :-p
