MS-DOS Source Code Released by Microsoft On Computer History Museum
Microsoft has announced the availability of the MS-DOS source code via GitHub, in the form of MS-DOS 1.25 and MS-DOS 2.0.
The original source-code and compiled binaries are now available to download and offers the same files originally shared at the Computer History Museum on March 25th, 2014. Publication via GitHub hopes to make the repo more accessible and easier to find and offers reference-to external writing and works, and enables “exploration and experimentation” for those interested in early PC Operating Systems, says Microsoft.
“The source files in this repo are for historical reference and will be kept static, so please don’t send Pull Requests suggesting any modifications to the source files, but feel free to fork this repo and experiment. If, however, you’d like to submit additional non-source content or modifications to non-source files (e.g., this README), please submit via PR, and we’ll review and consider. This project has adopted the Microsoft Open Source Code of Conduct. “
