About Jim Hall
I’m Jim Hall, the founder and Project Coordinator of the FreDOS Project.
I started FreeDOS in 1994, when I was still an undergraduate physics student at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Almost immediately, other developers contacted me, and we began work creating our own version of DOS that would be compatible with MS-DOS. I packaged my own extended DOS utilities, as did others, and we found other public domain or open source programs that replaced other DOS commands. A few months later, we released our first FreeDOS Alpha distribution. And from there, FreeDOS grew into what you see today!
