I'm setting up a virtual machine that is going to run a legacy application that runs in MS-DOS 6.22. The client asked about the legality of copying the MS-DOS software. (He does have the license on the original machine as well as the original 3.5 install disks, so I suppose I would be "transferring it" from the old machine to the new virtual one) but this question has made me curious. Has MS-DOS moved into a sort of "freeware status" or does the copyright still have Microsoft teeth? If it still has to be licensed where can a legal copy of MS-DOS be found? Thanks!
