All You Need to Know About MS-DOS
Remember the good ole' days before Windows? Back then, something called "DOS" was the law of the land.

If you're old enough to remember that time, then you'll appreciate the few cases of this book we just dug out of our basement.

This is an excellent reference guide for one of the most reliable, quick and powerful operating systems ever created. And surprisingly enough, most DOS commands can still be effectively used today!

I don't know about you, but I still use DOS almost daily for tasks which are just a hassle in Windows XP.

What's DOS still good for?

  • Checking Internet connectivity for slowdowns (ping)
  • Changing permissions of multiple files at once (attrib)
  • Showing your internal/external IP addresses (ipconfig)
  • Creating batch files (.bat) to run simple Windows tasks
  • Mass renaming of files (*.doc --> *.txt)
  • And much, much more!

    So whether you're going to utilize some DOS utilities, or just want a nostalgic technical read, All You Need to Know about MS-DOS is the perfect solution.

    Note that supplies are extremely limited, and once they're sold out, they're gone forever!
