"DOS Week" Roundup!
A (more or less) complete look at what happened during the amazing "Week in DOS"!
Our “Live in DOS for a Week” challenge has come to and end here at The Lunduke Journal. It was a blast to have a good excuse to play around with DOS stuff for a full week.
Gaming, software, programming, graphics, networking, different DOS systems… we kinda hit on all of it during the week! Well done, everyone!
