Subject: Getting the word out about DR DOS

Concerns have been raised that DR-DOS incompatibilities and flaws are
being overlooked by reviewers.
We recommend that we *informally* plant the bug of FUD in their ears.
"Have you heard about problems with DR DOS?"
"That security feature is a neat idea and, gosh, such a feature would be
great, but it's just too easily circumvented"
"Gee, it's unfortunate that DR DOS can't be loaded high all the time.
MS-DOS 5.0 can" We'll do this very tactfully.
The security features may lead someone to a false sense of security and
someone may break into their payroll.
* If Digital Research can to Microsoft for help in making DR DOS work
with Windows, would Microsoft help them? Maybe not?
