Download The Source Code For MS-DOS And Word For Windows Right Now

So this is unexpected and very cool: Microsoft has released the source code for the original versions of MS-DOS and Word for Windows.

OK, the chances are you’re not going to find too many immediately useful bits of code in software developed in 1982 and 1990 respectively. But if you’re a geek of a certain age, this is still an impressive moment. Note that the code can only be repurposed for non-commercial use: no selling Word for Windows for iPad, OK?
