Yes, I'm serious. I know the prevailing consensus is that you can't get a virus because DOS is dead and old. But that doesn't in my mind mean that one can't pick up a classic 1980s or 1990s virus off of an old FTP archive or BBS dump, used recyclable or program disks, or random "abandonware" computer program cracked and zipped up decades ago . Seems fairly likely, actually.
The machine in question is a 1400LT with dual floppy drives. Some kind of real time scanner that can load off the DOS 3.2 boot disk, run on an 8088, and only use a few dozen KB of disk space would be cool. Or is this crazy talk?
