DOS x86 Operating Systems Software

DOS is an acronym for Disk Operating System (OS). A disk operating system is software that organizes and controls how computers read, write and interact with disks (floppy, hard, CD-ROM) and communicate with a computer's various input/output devices: keyboards, pointing devices, scanners, microphones, serial and parallel ports; screens, printers, modems, etc. On this page, links are arranged in three groups and levels: 1) Top group: issues spanning multiple unrelated DOSs. 2) Middle group: graphic user interfaces for DOS. 3) Bottom group: specific DOSs.
