    We know that over half of us are PC users, and that according to our own polling, we're not all spring chickens, so if you still have access to a few of your old DOS programs, get iDOS now - who knows how long it will be up.

    Apparently, it can even run early versions of Windows.

    I know I have some old floppies around here somewhere. Oh, but do I still have a floppy disk. - that is the question.

    Who knows if I'll ever use it, but for 99 cents and the risk of it disappearing for good, it is a no brainer.

    C:\> dos run

    Yep, this was a "must get" item, especially for 99 cents

    It wasn't on the App Store on the iPad (yet?), but it is on iTunes on PC. Syncing as we speak!

    I swear I am going broke 99¢ at a time!

    EDIT: OK, as dumb as this sounds, I wish I could use that keyboard all the time instead of the "virtual" keyboards.

    Either it's gone already or it's not on the German AppStore. :-(

    I downloaded it from the Swiss App Store, but I'll check if it's still there.

    Edit: nope, already gone :(

    If people still want a DOS emulator and are jailbroken, DOSPad works pretty well and is free. When I saw the screen shots of the paid app the first thing I thought was that somebody took DOSPad and put it up as a paid app. It looks identical.

    Actually, I think it is identical, they just took the 'pad' out of the name because Apple doesn't like that.

    I've found the sourcecode for DOSpad on the web.
    I'll get that compiled in the development-kit and then install it on my iPad from there.
    That should do the trick...
