Just now, FreeDOS has released version 1.2 of their free and open source Disk Operating System! It doesn't seem to have any major new features, especially what DOS gaming is concerned, but hopefully game compatibility has improved.
This is a video review with the view of using FreeDOS as a MS-DOS replacement for playing classic DOS games on a retro gaming PC. I have tested a lot of games and will talk about any issues I encountered. I also cover the installation process, what version to download and more.
Enjoy this video!

i just read, that version 1.3 of FreeDOS has released in february 2022
Had another look at it and issue's, I'd guess, missing Insert/Eject Notification in Ahci.sys from HP. C&C Install works fine with Ahcicd.sys from R. Loew and Eltorito.sys from Syslinux Project. By the way, the game itself runs with Ahci.sys, too, when already installed. Would've loved to also test new Ahcicd.dll, yet it failed to load on my machine.
Full error in C&C Install with Ahci.sys is:-
