In my search to find a 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 reliable operating system, with as many features as it can be. That is why I created XDOS. It is fully compatible with MS-DOS, written in assembler and including 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 DOS. The real-mode single-process nature of the OS is a drawback for many, but a real advantage in critical applications. A powerful feature of XDOS is that 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.
Pseudo GUI for easy file access. (Pseudo GUI is very fast and reliable in comparison to X-like GUI. Other GUIs available too).
Many network cards packet drivers.
Huge lot of applications for programming, edit, graphics, games, internet and more.
XDOS is currently under development.
The current version (3) of XDOS can be found here: XDOS (847Mb .zip file. Last updated 28 May 2010)
