Welcome to “All Things DOS”, this site is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the early computers that forever changed the history of computers. The goal of this site is to help people preserve, restore and keep alive these ground breaking machines.
Yes our name is All Things DOS. Originally the site was going to concentrate on the Original IBM Personal Computer the IBM-5150
PC. However being geeks things don’t always go as planned. And by the way DOS did not start with the IBM PC it was around long before then DOS stands for Disk Operating System, the first DOS Ed worked on was RTDOS (Real Time Disk Operating System on the Data General Nova 3/12 mini computer. Which by the way was taller than Ed so much for the name Mini.
Here at All Things DOS the decision was made to include all early computers anything over about 25 years old. For the record the Apple IIe computer did offer a DOS program though in the early days Ed never used it His experience with the Apple IIe dealt with Basic something he has long since forgotten.
On these pages, you will find manuals, games, system software, BIOS software, and even some productivity software. Please take your time.
Kick off your shoes, lean back and take a walk through what the early Computers are capable of doing.
