If you find something - apart from WfW 3.11 - that works better in dosbox than in freedos, then we can start and check if any dosbox functionality related to this can be copied into freedos :-). Checking the list on: www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0503736/php/drdoswiki/index.php?n=Main.Compatibility - I see you list "exiting the OpenWatcom WD debugger after debugging a DOS extended app crashes" here - please check if it also happens in other DOS. If not, please add a bug report on bugzilla.freedos.org - thanks! - country, nlsfunc: does dosbox support that? does it have chcp? As the unstable branch of the freedos kernel already has it, it will be easier to take from there than from dosbox, I guess. - config sys menu: does dosbox support that?? - int 21.4b05 set execution state - would be interesting to see how dosbox implements this, but I have no idea which apps actually use it...? - support for big files: for which apps is this useful? if dosbox supports it, it is definitely useful to have a look how they implement it, to stay compatible :-) - japanese chinese korean chars: does dosbox support that?? - close by property / list open files: either kernel or share, but main question is probably: which apps actually use it? (int 21.5dnn) - Similar for possibly missing int 2f functions. - boot from non primary partition: I have a patch, but who wants to try it? needs the current fedora grub boot menu. - what else?
