It is the year 2020 and yet, some of us are still fascinated by an operating system that hasn't been updated in nearly 20 years. In this episode we are trying to answer the question "why"?
That DOS is still relevant today is demonstrated by the success of DOS Games Jam - a game jam dedicated to the style of DOS games. 123 games have been submitted to this jam, all of which are either inspired by old DOS games or are even DOS games themselves.
