<grumble> Huh. People these days just don't know how lucky they are!!! </grumble>

Kids today can still have all the joys of working constrained bare metal on the Raspberry Pi GPU, which neither Broadcom or the Raspberry Pi foundation have officially documented, if they care to.

That's got video, serial and I/O capabilities. I wonder if MS-DOS could be ported and cajoled to boot on that?
