FreeDOS Email Lists

These are the official email lists for FreeDOS, and where most FreeDOS developers communicate with each other. Email lists are email addresses which send email to all users subscribed to the list. Sending an email to a list reaches all users interested in discussing a specific topic and helping other users with their questions.

We have only a few rules about posting to the email lists.

Do you have a question about FreeDOS, or need help installing? Freedos-user is the place for general FreeDOS discussion.

FreeDOS Forums

If you're looking to connect with other DOS and FreeDOS users, you might be interested in one of these unofficial forums for discussion. Forums are like message boards. You can post a question, and come back later to see if someone has answered it. Or you can use chat, a real-time, text-based form of communication with multiple people in an open channel. You will need a chat client.
