DOS 5 was a pretty neat release for it's time.

It introduced the DOS shell (kind of like Explorer but not for windows)and I

think it was the first version of DOS that let you utilize the upper memory.

Remember back when 1 MG was a lot???

Things were a whole lot simpler back then. I really had a hard time

switching over to windows (3.1 then) and I STILL remember most of the

DOS commands. I never used a "menu" program.....I just did it all from

the C:

Ah yes.................those were the days!

Was I even born when the released dos


the original DOS program, CP/M (Control Program/Monitor).

(Control Program for Microcomputer), was created in 1973 by Gary Kildall.

In February of 1979 Apple released DOS 3.2 which was a rewrite of CP/M.
