DOS, being it the proprietary MS-DOS or free-as-in-freedom FreeDOS ( still have a little place in the modern IT world.
A fading place I shall admit

DOS? - it was before me being interested in computers (beside an old
Schneider CPC64 with a cassette tape drive) so I am not competent to
answer the question. But I can tell that I wouldn't miss it.

I'll take steps towards c-runtime simplification.  For now, I'm not
throwing out DOS just yet, as many Intel-based controller boards may
be using a derivative of DOS.  About keeping DOS for now, I'd
appreciate feedback from our user-base and/or readership.

A system is perfect if you can't remove anything from it :-)

Not always but in this case I would go for removing everything that
simplifies debugging, our life, whatever, as long as nobody is

After 3 Days now I would say we can safely remove everything expect
(32 and 64 bit variants) and PPC.

Thanks for taking care Hans,

  Hi Group,
 do we really continue to support CRAY, RS6000, PowerPC,
VAX, SPARC, MC68000, NS32000, etc.?
 The C-runtime (esp. base.h and base.c) could be so much
and easier to validate when support for all of the above legacy
systems were dropped?  Is there any merit in keeping that old
Maybe just keep PowerPC?
