MS-DOS Mobile

On 1 April 2015, Microsoft launched a new operating system for Lumina phones, known as MS-DOS Mobile. Whilst it was seen as an April Fools’ Joke by some, it actually is a workable operating system, complete with commands familiar to MS-DOS users and a mini-version of Windows 3.1.

The functionality is dependent commands, however there are some options worth experimenting with. Should you try to access the A: floppy disk drive, format the hard drive or try to play the built-in “Rock Paper Scissors” game, you will have some interesting results.
