I didn't know about the patch. Thanks for the info.
This was also the last version that was 16 bit. MSDOS v.7>> v.8 were 32

Which BG had been trying to achieve for years. Finally accomplished by
requiring W9x to run on a 32 bit DOS.
FWIW: The NT series is based on OS2. (Written mostly [the good parts]
by IBM. Customised [ *** ed] by MS.) Even at that, formatting a
bootable floppy on W2K resulted in a win98 DOS. I understand that XP
results in a winme DOS. (Even _if_ Bill claimed that XP was the end of
the DOS era. It's not the first lie he's told.)
To e-mail me, add the character zero to "dowcom". i.e.:
MSWindows is television,Linux is radar.
