I had thought of DOS (aka disk operating system) as being a specific 
OS, namely the c/pm ripoff QDOS purchased by Microsoft in 1980.  But 
yeah, now I remember they used to call that MS-DOS, right.


In fact, it appears that Apple DOS 3.1 is an early-ish Apple II.  So 
now it all makes sense.  Hey, You're a classic, Migurski!

Oregon's Science Museum OMSI occasionally puts an old Apple II to 
work for kids in the exhibit area...
