Dominik Diamond said the Amiga A1000 is ugly. Do you agree? Which is the ugliest of retro computers? We also chat about MS-DOS becoming open sourced and how the release has gone a bit wrong, and the effort Microsoft went to in getting DOS games running in Windows 95.

All this and other retro computing topics in brief along with your answers to last show's Community Question Of The Week.
