IBM's DOS 6
Prior to DOS 6, Microsoft's MS-DOS and IBM's PC-DOS were identical for all practical purposes. In PC-DOS 6, introduced as PC-DOS 6.1, all fundamental commands were the same, but PC-DOS 6.1 included support for pen-based computing and the PC Card. It also included a variety of enhanced utilities including a text editor, program scheduler, antivirus monitor and a full-screen Undelete for both DOS and Windows. For the first time, PC-DOS became available from IBM as a retail product, not just for IBM PCs. See DOS 7.
In early 1995, IBM released PC-DOS 7 with enhanced memory management and virus protection. It included the Stacker data compression program as well as utilities to enhance mobile computing. The DOS included in Windows 95/98 was sometimes called DOS 7. See Novell DOS.
