vdos is a great tool for running DOS applications on modern systems. It provides a reliable DOS environment and is easy to use. I've used it multiple times to run old games and applications originally designed for MS-DOS, with good results. It's also very lightweight and doesn't require a lot of resources to run. The documentation is thorough and helpful, and the software is regularly updated. I haven't had any issues with compatibility or performance. All in all, vdos is a great solution for running DOS software.
