Can someone familiar with DR-DOS explain what is the deal with the different versions? I have never used it before but would like to try it out. Naturally I'd go for the newest one, 8.x. But, at least what is on winworldpc.com, that one doesn't appear to have an installer and you instead have to copy the disk contents to the HDD and run SYS. Ok, fine, but I'd like to go through an actual installer. 6.x has an installer, and I didn't look much at 7.x.
I believe 6.x is the last "real" DR-DOS. Is that correct, and is there any reason to go to 7 or 8? Any compatibility issues, or major pros/cons?
