Microsoft: MS-DOS OS is Now Available for Mobiles

MS-DOS known as Microsoft Disk Operating System is an operating system for x86 -based personal computers mostly developed by Microsoft . It was the most commonly used member of the DOS family of operating systems, and was the main operating system for IBM PC compatible personal computers during the 1980s to the mid-1990s, when it was gradually superseded by operating systems offering a graphical user interface (GUI), in various generations of the Microsoft Windows operating system.
MS-DOS resulted from a request in 1981 by IBM for an operating system to use in its IBM PC range
of personal computers. Microsoft quickly bought the rights to 86-DOS from Seattle Computer Products, [7] and began work on modifying it to meet IBM’s specification. IBM licensed and released it in August 1981 as PC DOS 1.0 for use in their PCs. Although MS-DOS and PC DOS were initially developed in parallel by Microsoft and IBM, in subsequent years the two products went their separate ways.

Microsoft has just brought back the good old MS- DOS to mobiles – Lumia devices to be precise. MS- DOS OS runs just like the command prompt we have on your computers, starting from C: we can run installed applications and perform most of the functions on our phones.
Computer nerds would really appreciate this especially the ones used to the command prompt interface. Here you have no user interface, plenty colors or graphics, just type in a command and you
get a response. This adds to the list of cool stuff we can do on a Lumia phone. Here’s a video that
illustrates more on the MS-DOS OS.
