Microsoft liberates ancient MS-DOS source from the museum and sticks it in GitHub


Re: Ah, 9900

I was using OS-9 on a Tandy Colour Computer 3 (COCO 3), I was showing it off to a friend, we were downloading a picture from a BBS in one shell window at 1200 baud, then opened up another shell and started my picture viewer which opened the file with a read lock; it showed the image line by line as it downloaded. Very cool at the time....
