MS-DOS v6.22.

Microsoft DOS is a command line operating system based on QDOS, designed to run on IBM personal computers and first released in 1981. It saw continual improvements until it was superseded by Windows 95. Until the release of Windows 95, MS-DOS was the primary platform for PC gaming.

My family's first computer came with MS-DOS 5.0, which we later upgraded to 6.22 after its release.

MS-DOS can be emulated in most virtual machines, but to also emulate various forms of popular hardware, you will need DOSBox.
