I've been sharing some thoughts about DOS subsystem on ReactOS forum. I
am pasting my last post
here for your comments
I am back with my silly posts Smile
But this time, after seriously reading and experimenting with FreeDos
and DosEmu code.
As many people suggested FreeDOS as an option to run as ReactOS
subsystem, I concentrated more on FreeDOS.
Something I came to know are
1) We need ReactOS DOS/Win16 subsystem so that we can run 16bit DOS
applications on ReactOS.
2) FreeDOS itself is 16bit system
3) Compiling FreeDOS code with 32bit compiler is so difficult that it
gave birth to a new project FreeDOS-32 (I tried compiling FreeDOS code
with MinGW with no success)
4) FreeDOS-32 is in its infancy. Currently it can't even run simple DOS
5) DOSEmu is really slow
Please give your valuable suggestions.
AcetoliNe: I agree with your last post.
