FC: The History of MS-DOS By: Jacob Austin-Bubb
1: DOS is a trademark of Microsoft please respect the official release.
2: IBM first introduced MS-DOS or the Microsoft Direct Operating System for their personal computers in 1981 on August 12.
3: FUN FACT: MS-DOS was home for some famous games like the first First-Person shooters DOOM, Wolfenstein, and Duke Nukem.
4: MS-DOS was a revolutionary piece of programing and processing that it sold over 6.22 million copies. It was the base for most of the computers we have today.
5: Fun Fact: MS-DOS was based on a program called the QDOS or the Quick and Dirty Operating System.
6: The MS-DOS was last updated in 1994 when MS-DOS 6.22 was released. Although the MS-DOS operating system is not commonly used today, the command shell more commonly known as the Windows command line is still used and recommended.
7: Today, most computer users are only familiar with how to navigate Microsoft Windows using the mouse. Unlike Windows, MS-DOS is a command-line and is navigated by using MS-DOS commands.
8: If you wanted to see all the files in a folder in Windows you would double-click the folder to open the folder in Windows Explorer. In MS-DOS, to view that same folder you would navigate to the folder using the cd command and then list the files in that folder using the dir command.
9: You type MS-DOS commands using a command prompt window To end your MS-DOS session, type exit in the command prompt window at the blinking cursor. The MS-DOS mode is a shell in which the MS-DOS environment is emulated in 32-bit systems, such as Windows. MS-DOS-based programs can run with Windows and might create a program information file (PIF) which appears as a shortcut on your desktop.
10: That is all about MS-DOS, it was revolutionary for its time and is the base for the computers we have now
