Early tech fans might remember the good 'ol days of Microsoft MS-DOS, the company's first operating system from the 1980s. Now, with the help of the Computer History Museum, Microsoft is making the source code for DOS available to the public for the first time ever. Get excited, hackers.

The Computer History Museum, based in Mountain View, Calif., is making MS DOS 1.1, 2.0 and Word 1.1a available to help fans and technologists better understand the history of computing.

NOTE - The source is open, it isn't free to sell.
