"However, many non-gaming functions will never work. Don’t expect non-gaming functions like printing, file locking, clipboard, Ctrl+Break, LFN support, NETBEUI or TCP/IP networking, device driver, non-bitmap rendering, etc to work in DOSBox SVN, ever. "
Actually, I have never expected these features. Printing works fine from Win 3.11 under dosbox, using the Apple Laserwriter and postcript. The actual printing of course needs to be done via your host system. Printing from "DOS" under dosbox? Well, many of the text files are in plain text format and can - again - be printed via your host system. LFN? Didn't have it back on my real dos machine, so I don't care. Networking? Didn't have it as well, so I don't care. Device drivers? I have not yet come across an app that I would need them for. So, for me dosbox (and I mean plain dosbox) is the perfect solution. If I need commands not in included, I just use the commands from freedos or its command.com. Actually, it has been a fun project (!) for me to see how far I can push dosbox' limits. If I encounter something that is beyond its capabilities, I install DOS 6.22 in dosbox.
