Greetings jack,
I certainly agree with your stance here.  I have been using one ms dos 7.1 
package since at least 2007 or so easily and effortlessly.  I have helped 
others find it as well.
I am not sure where the .bg country code is, but I could not connect to 
site when I tried it before writing this note.  it may be that they dislike 
low graphics browsers like lynx, or that they are now getting lots of 
I need, no demand smiles reliability, so  skip buts myself.
I have not used ms dos 6.22 for a grand while though, my need for much 
larger drives, the one I use for backup is over 30 gig, made the 7.1 door 
more practical.  I do wonder sometimes though if I could accomplish  a bit 
of both worlds.
What stands out for you in dos 6.22 over the later 7.1 edition of ms dos?
Most important of all, hear hear on using what you desire.  It is why 
there is a personal in pc after all.
