I'd like to thank Jack for his work, and I'm really very happy that DOS isn't 
dead (yet). Seeing so many programs still being actively developed for DOS 
makes me very happy!

>From a users point of view it is a good thing to have the required resources 
to still use some old but useful DOS software that would otherwise end up in a 
Virtual Machine with ancient versions of, mostly, MS-DOS.

I have an ASUS EeePC 901 with an older SSD, that now has its internal 4G 
partition (first flash drive) used for FreeDOS. It runs and I'm happy. Most 
drivers, like UIDE and JEMM386, work very well.

The problem is mostly to get drivers, like VESA and SOUND, to run on these 
computers. I'm still to experiment with this issues, because I want to use the 
EeePC for running my favorite DOS games as well.

Maybe I'll be here then more often!

Anyway, big THANKS to all developers out there who give their programs to all 
of them DOS users, like me!
