Default Microsoft's MS-DOS is 30 today

From http://www.reghardware.com/2011/07/27/ms_dos_turns_30/

Quote:
MS-DOS is 30 years old today. Well, kind of. On 27 July 1981, Microsoft gave the name MS-DOS to the disk operating system it acquired on that day from Seattle Computer Products (SCP), a hardware company owned and run by a fellow called Rod Brock.

SCP developed what it at various times called QDOS and 86-DOS to run on a CPU card it had built based on Intel's 8086 processor.

After about 30 years they will do the same about Novell

If I made so much money as they did with QDOS (Quick Dirty Operating System) I would be celebrating as well
