Software Library: MS-DOS Showcase

This collection is a hand-picked set of selections from the MS-DOS Software Library of the Internet Archive. They've been chosen because they represent major parts of the MS-DOS story, because they are particularly impressive, and because they're fun. The intention is to eventually link these games to manuals and other materials as time goes on.
