Feels amazing to have seen so many advances in the field in my lifetime thus far. Can't wait until he makes another video 20 years from now and continues it on. Assuming we don't change architecture, which we will.
[QUOTE=Tuskin;28431262]That is one way to keep DOS Support without using DOS Box in the later versions. according to a youtube comment Doom 2 still worked in Vista/Win 7[/QUOTE] How? Windows 7 AFAIK doesn't have any kind of MSDOS support at all. I'm not sure how simply having the program being present in the orignal install folder will magically make MSDOS work in Win7
[QUOTE=dude2193;29607546]not to bring fanboy logic into this, but this is pretty incredible, considering you cant do this with a mac thanks to its locked hardware requirements (from PPC to Intel processors)[/QUOTE] But why would you ever want to upgrade through all of those versions? This video was made to feed fanboy wars. In all fucking seriousness, stop getting apple into windows discussions and vice versa. Both operating systems / hardwares have brought something new into the market with each generation, YES BOTH, deal with it and stop with all the apple vs. microsoft bullshit. P.S. Gmod runs on both so cease your rage.
Uh, he sounds kinda like Shaun Connery...

[QUOTE=Tuskin;29662994]Maybe it kept MSDOS support in the upgrades?[/QUOTE] But W7 has zero support for below 32bit applications, and MSDOS isn't a 32bit (or higher) environment.

Anyways on topic, I was surprised to see some Windows 1 applications still present in Windows 7.

Ms-DOS? Nostalgia

Not really taht impressive, as they implemented it as such, and really the only things he checked was the program icons? It's not that hard to have the setup copy those to the new folder, which usually isnt even a new one. I would have liked to see the more detailed things like actual settings etc. Because I upgraded from XP to Win 7 and noticed, that even though upgrading was "not supported" it actually inherited some settings.
Good video.

Woah, when I install windows I boot from the disk and erase all my personal files. FUCK. WHY HAS NO-ONE TOLD ME.
I want to install MS-DOS onto my Windows 7 Laptop. How do I do!?
