Today Microsoft launches MS-DOS Mobile, a new OS designed especially for Lumia smartphones.

Microsoft is going back to where productivity started for millions of people, launching a beautifully simple OS.

The MS-DOS Mobile preview is an essential download. Whether you’re going back to BASIC, or simply booting into DOS for the first time, MS-DOS Mobile marks the next step in Microsoft’s reinvention of productivity.

The OS allows you to run a number of already installed applications, while the sleuths amongst you will delight in uncovering a few extra special features – all through the medium of the much-loved C:/ prompt.

To find out how, and to learn about the story behind it, watch our exclusive launch video.

 

 

Daniel Glass who led design on the project, said:

“Turning our back on graphics was hugely liberating. We’ve dropped the resolution, and in doing so re-discovered our roots.”

“The inspiration for the graphical design is Courier New meets film noir.”

Tom Messett, from the marketing team at Microsoft Lumia, said:

“MS-DOS Mobile allows us to look proudly back, while at the same time moving us defiantly forwards.”

“It’s simple, effective productivity re-imagined through the medium of DOS. “

Designed to complement the heritage feel with a new-age operation, MS-DOS Mobile has been re-built from the ground up.
