The Freedos Project (FreeDOS Kernel)
FreeDOS is ideal for anyone who wants to bundle a version of DOS without paying a royalty its use. FreeDOS also works on old hardware, in DOS emulators, and in embedded systems. It is an invaluable resource for people who would like to develop their own operating system. While there are many free operating systems out there, no other free DOS-compatible operating system exists.
