MS-DOS 3.20

Originally 86-DOS, written by Tim Paterson of Seattle Computer Products, DOS was a rough clone of CP/M for 8086 based hardware. Microsoft purchased it and licensed it to IBM for use with Microsoft's IBM PC language products. In 1982, Microsoft began licensing DOS to other OEMs that ported it to their custom x86 hardware and IBM PC clones.

For IBM-specific releases, please see the IBM PC-DOS product page.


Release notes

Microsoft DOS 3.2 is the first release offered as a "vanilla" boxed set directly to consumers, instead of just OEMs.

This version adds mainstrem support for 720K 3.5" floppy drives, although some 2.x OEM versions also supported 720K disks.

A new RAMDRIVE.SYS supports creating a ram disk in conventional, EMS, or XMS memory.
