MS-DOS Making A Comeback

Turns out DOS is going to sell pretty well in China. The Ministry of Information Industry is demanding all PC manufacturers in the country use legal software, so if they want an operating system, they’ll need the cheapest, simplest, quickest available OS around. As a result, companies are deciding an investment in MS-DOS is exactly the way to meet the law.

Keep in mind, DOS is probably cheaper than Linux. I think.

Funny. Could we see a resurgence in DOS use because of this? Or, more likely, does this mean the annoyance of buyers having to pirate the software themselves, instead of relying on the OEMs to do the work for them.
