In my search to find a more reliable, ultrafast and simple operating system for some of my electronics projects I went back to the old days of MS-DOS. The problem with MS-DOS today is that it lacks of the many features of the modern operating systems. We want a fast and quite reliable operating system, with as many features as possible. That is why I created the XDOS package. It is a compilation of huge lot of applications and MS-DOS, taken out from these dos boot disks freely available on the net, in a single package. It includes a collection of utilities and drivers, to be able to do many of the things that you are used to do, in modern computers, yet using x86 DOS. The real-mode single-process nature of the OS is a drawback for many, but a real advantage in more critical applications. A powerful feature of XDOS is that it is highly portable since it runs from a USB stick drive (provided that you have a computer which supports boot from USB), so you do not need to format your computer in order to install it on the hard drive. Some of its many features include:
Ability to boot XDOS from USB stick.
Text-based user interface (TUI) for easier file access. (TUI is very fast and reliable in comparison to GUI. However GUIs options are available too).
Many network cards packet drivers.
Huge lot of applications for programming, edit, graphics, games, internet, ham radio and more.
XDOS is always under development. Contact me for the current version (8) of XDOS (Last updated 3 November 2014).
