fingers cramped and vision bleary,
System manuals piled high
and wasted paper on the floor,

Only this and nothing more.

The 10 Commandments of DOS
1. I am thy DOS, thou shall have no OS before me, unless Bill Gates gets a cut of the profits there from.
2. Thy DOS is a character based, single user, single tasking, standalone operating system. Thou shall not attempt to make DOS network, multitask, or display a graphical user interface, for that would be a gross hack.
3. Thy hard disk shall never have more than 1024 sectors. You don't need that much space anyway.
