I think that the key is to perceive FreeDOS as a replacement to MSDOS, 
nothing else (that is, "BASE"). The legalese on these things can be a 
bit confusing, so I believe that the extreme caution that FreeDOS 
applies in this area is legitimate.

But then, for actually useful (practical) stuff, one has to rely on a 
FreeDOS distribution, like Svarog386, or collect the required "non-free" 
bits by hand over the internet.

Otherwise I agree it can get a bit frustrating for actual users, and 
that's the reason I started Svarog386 in the first place.


Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!
