The Mostly MS-DOS Software Museum
Mostly by Bill Buckels
This Website is a repository of Software written primarily by Me (Bill
Buckels) spanning the last couple of decades. Most of this Software
can be used freely (even the Copyrighted software). The majority of the
programs on this website were orginally distributed as Shareware or Freeware
for MS-DOS or WIN16 and come with source code (or will as time goes on).
It is a work in progress.
A fair number of these programs were targeted at the Children's Educational
Software Market. When they were written I (like many other shareware authors) hoped
that the world at large would think them perfectly wonderful and large bags of
money would appear in my mailbox. Alas the latter never occurred, but still
thinking that somewhere on this planet someone will still think them
wonderful, and for whatever other self-agrandizing reasons I may have, they
are offered here for your continuing enjoyment. Please feel free to
download whatever strikes your fancy without fear of reprisal. Those days
have long-ago vanished leaving whatever fun can still be had behind.
Despite the fact that direct MS-DOS support by modern operating systems
has vanished, emulators like DOSBox and others still allow even the oldest of
these to run on new computers, even on Linux systems and the like. I am a big
fan of DOSBox and again as time permits I will be repackaging the MS-DOS
programs that need special care and feeding with a DOSBox configuration
of sorts for Windows XP which although now also officially dead is still
presently (2008) in wide use.
