            FreeDOS is good in some situation where you do not want to rewrite complex DOS based software.

                For Linux they have to provide support and presetup the Linux for all features. If they preinstall FreeDOS they don't have this problem.

                    I iguess it is useful for those dos utilities able to manage bios update of several devices, hardware system diagnose, LLF, HDD management. The way to install it into a bootable USB is interesting. I use to create a bootable USB by legacy floppy provided by bootable dos.
