Post subject:  [offer] MS-DOS 6.30 Beta

I have casually found it on one of the sites devoted DOS. And I did not see, that here spoke about this version. I do not know, this version original or fake. But in NFO it is written that it is not hack.
Release date - May 1995.

MS-DOS 6.30 beta

The product appears to be a version of 6.22, with some things changed. However, this is reputed of the "DOS 7 beta 2" as well. It is also to keep in mind that "beta 1" is largely based on 6.00 (it is listed as 6.07 in my catalogues).

Drivers correspond to MS-DOS 6.22, except for mouse. In 607, drivers correspond to version 6.20, even though most of the file comes from 6.00.

Help seems to be based on 6.22, (in 607, the help is from 600). Help.hlp from 622 is also distributed with Windows retail: that is why i did a new version.

DOSSHELL is identical to all 6.xx versions.

Edit is the same as in Chicago 136, MSD is from 122. However, since the editor from 122 says "Chicago Emergency Beta", it could have been changed to read MS-DOS Editor for this beta.

I'm pretty sure that Microsoft may had ultimately decided to leap 6.30 in retail release, but i would need to do some further tests to see if this is really a DOS 6.30 or a patch job. In general, it looks authentic.

When you get it in a VPC box, it says MS-DOS 6.30 in the dos start up, but running VER gives MS-DOS 6.22, as does MSD and IBM's qconfig. If this had been compiled by Microsoft, one would expect all of this to come from version.h, as eg 6.22 or 6.30.

It must be noted also that IBM's version of DOS 6.10 reports 6.00 here, in both forms so it is not entirely inappropriate for this to be the case. Need to dig deeper before deciding whether this is a fake.

It sure does look pretty good, though.
