Thanks a lot Jim, for pointing this out, because there was quit some confusing, at least I was confused :-) > I hate having to ask these kinds of questions to people who eagerly > want to contribute to FreeDOS, but my most important job is protecting > the FreeDOS Project. So while I don't like doing it, I believe > stopping to ask these questions was the right thing to do. 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 ;-) @ Oscar: 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 reviewing crapware. I will inform Thom Holwerda of http://osnews.com as well. Once again: *Gratias* for your great work! ...
