Re: Debian+umsdos (fwd)

Simon Shapiro:
   And why do we want this brain dead file system (which even M$ does
   not use for its own 1980 eras OS's) to boot a Unix O/S with?

Please note that we shouldn't drop a user base just because Microsoft
has stopped supporting them.

More to the point, while "DOS" is a lousy operating system, it does
all right as a program loader.  It's certainly fancier than lilo [if
not as distributable.]
