Commodore 64 Programs

All Things DOS is in the process of adding hundreds of Commodore 64 Programs to our large collection of Vintage Computer Programs View our C-64 Program page for the full listing of Commodore 64 program disk images. We have not yet tested any of these files one we have we will add information on how best to decompress them and copy them to a media usable for the commodore 64. These file are all available in the Public Domain All Things DOS  has only assembled them into a convenient collection. Please contact us if you would like to buy a DVD containing all these files. You may also contact us about buying copies of our other program or manual libraries on DVD.

More Apple II programs

 

Today All Things DOS added another than 100 disk images to our Apple II library. There are still 1,000+ images to go. If you haven’t already done so sign up and take a look at our growing library of early computer programs. Don’t Forget to check out the Commodore 64 library and the IBM collection.

Vintage Software Collection

 

Yesterday All Things DOS started to add TOSEC (The Old School Emulation Center) Apple II program collection. This collection of over 1,000 vintage Apple II Disk images is available free to our valued members. As always membership to All Things DOS is free. Ed is still working to complete this vast collection. Currently he has only completed program starting with the letters A-F. This is in addition to our vast collection of early DOS programs. We will update our site as this project progresses. This morning Ed added a collection of over 200 vintage Commodore 64 disk images to our site.

Currently All Things DOS has not attempted to use either set of programs to build disks for our systems. We just haven’t reached the point where our collection is ready. Once we do so, complete instructions for using these images will be added to the program page. For now I am sorry to say you are on your own. Please share with us you experiences including what works and what doesn’t so that we may share the good and the bad with our members.

It is the goal of All Things DOS to provide a collection of pictures, software, manuals, tips, and tricks to as many vintage computer systems as possible. Currently All Things DOS is a project ran by Ed and Tom.  There are just the two of use. Both of us are disabled living on a limited income. We can’t afford to buy all the vintage computers we want, nor do we have the time to do everything we want with this site. We ask all our friends to please share pictures, information excreta about their vintage systems and experience. Anyone interested in becoming part of the All Things DOS team please contact us for more information.

Don’t let are name fool you we are not JUST about DOS based computers we are about all forms of vintage computing micros, minis, and main frames, we love them all.

Donations

20130518-194648.jpgtoday All Things DOS accepted the donation of a collection of vintage computer systems. Including two old TRS computers several Mac computers, a compaq portable II and more amount these are several printers.

Ed brought the compaq portable in to his office to test it, but needs to download the diagnostic disk so he cannon figure the system bios. Expect more on this soon.

There is also a Macintosh M0001, the worlds first Mac. Ed has been looking for one of these for awhile so excited to get into it. However at this time they do not have the mouse for it, Ed is hopping he can get this vintage system up and running soon. If anyone has a PDF of the hardware manual, the can send Ed at ed@allthingsdos.com that would be great. He also needs the tool to open the M0001 case.

Stay tuned for a complete inventory, pictures, write ups and more to come as Ed and Tom dig into their newest finds.

All Things DOS continues to look for vintage equipment to restore and add to our growing collection.

Data General 3/12 computer

Data General 3/12 computer

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.

Apple IIe

Apple IIe

Here at All Things DOS the decision was made to include all early computers anything over about 35 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 writing Basic programs something he has long since forgotten.

Changes to our Site and more services
