Dinosaur Sightings: DOS File Managers


The first DOS File Manager that I ever used was called the 1dir from Bourbaki. I got a copy back in 1985 when I was still running DOS 2.11 on my old Kaypro 16. I still have the original package—a 6x9 binder-like folder that contained the 5.25-inch floppy disk and the manuals.
