Jim Hall

Hi there! I'm Jim Hall, and I'm the founder and coordinator of the FreeDOS Project. You've found my personal web page.

I started the FreeDOS Project in 1994 when I was an undergraduate student, because I really loved DOS and the command line, and wasn't a fan of Windows 3.1. Like many other DOS users at the time, I'd written my own replacements for several common DOS commands, so I could do more on the command line. I shared those tools under an open source license, and invited others to contribute theirs too. And that's how FreeDOS started.

These days, I mostly keep the FreeDOS website updated, maintain our social media, write how-to articles, and record videos for our YouTube channel.

If you'd like to support me, I have a Patreon. If you prefer to use PayPal, I have an account there too.
