I am a software developer who writes multimedia software by day, and emulator and retro software by night. In my spare time, I develop both DOSBox-X and DOSLIB. Both projects taken together serve as a form of historical preservation of the MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 platform as it existed in the 1990s and 1980s. DOSBox-X strives to emulate the hardware as close as possible. DOSLIB strives to provide functional open source MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 software that is useful on real hardware and who's source code is a reference to how to write such software.

Using both emulation and real PC hardware from the era, my weekly video series serves to document the platform and chronicle the now 30+ year journey from the original IBM PC and MS-DOS system to the derivative platforms and systems we have today. I hope to document along the way in intricate detail what the platform was like, how it existed and technical details as a historical record.

To fans and patrons with an interest in MS-DOS and Windows history, thank you!
