EDIT - June 30: According to Jim Hall, this turned out to be a joke that backfired. FreeDOS is still alive.
About today/yesterday, FreeDOS manager Jim Hall pretty much resigned and gave the project up for dead. He moved the content to SourceForge from his own server, and now freedos.org redirects to the new SF page.
Jim Hall founded FreeDOS in 1994, and it came a long way but it is still in "beta" stage. It never made it to version 1.0 like he had hoped. He got tired of waiting and gave up. He even made a logo depicting the FreeDOS Fish lying on his back dead (imagine a dead Bertie bear or a dead penguin). FreeDOS uses the GPL license, like phpBB does.
While FreeDOS is still available from SF and the download mirrors, the shocking thing is after 12 years, the FreeDOS project is considered dead by its founder/owner. Of course I am grateful for Jim and everybody else's work, and FreeDOS is about 90% or more as good as MS-DOS.
What do you guys think of the DOS world in general?
For me, while I'm a fan of DOS (been using it since I was 9 years old in 1992), I am beginning to feel the life oozing out of it as it continues to get older and older. Gradually, DOS is having less influence on my computer life but I still enjoy it as a hobby. The majority of my serious purposes are done on either Windows or Linux.
