1) Under current maintenance, not "abandoned" like FD-EMM386.
2) Many never-fixed FD-EMM386 "bugs" ARE fixed in JEMM386, as
    you can read in the JEMM ChangeLog at <>.
3) Part of the FreeDOS "Base Software" list, meaning "Cleverer
    minds than me!" value JEMM386 above FD-EMM386, for FreeDOS.

If you mean the very-old Lotus/Intel/Microsoft "Expanded Memory"
then I cannot comment, as I have never used actual "EMS" memory.

If by "EMS" you actually mean XMS memory, there should be little
performance difference, as the XMS driver handles allocation/use
of that memory.

Most are not, but a few are.   Read the JEMM ChangeLog, then you
can decide which hardware-dependent problems might have affected
its "predecessor" FD-EMM386.
