Windows 3.x support...

Actually, FreeDOS is not freeware, it is Free Software. Neither is it just free for personal use, it is free for commercial use or whatever.

I wasn't referring specifically to Freedos:

But there are several "alternate" DOSes that are either freeware or free for personal use.

however you may want to tell this to the Freedos Authors:

http://www.freedos.org/

Welcome to FreeDOS

FreeDOS is a free DOS-compatible operating system for IBM-PC compatible systems.

If an operating system is software, calling Freedos "freeware" does not seem inaccurate to me. :unsure:

If you meant that it is both "free" (thus "freeware") and "Open Source", you are correct. :)

Abandonware is software that is no longer sold or supported. That doesn't mean you are free to distribute or sell it. Should the company want to re-release it at some point, you would be taking from their profits.

Because there's such a huge market for Windows 3.11 now.
