Hey, I remember working on a PC that actually used hardware-level EMS

I remember doing that. ramdisk.sys was it, I think? Then there was the Borland "SideKick" TSR that could use that RAM. And the Quarterdeck QEMM and DESKView and good old DR DOS. Ha, I have my DR DOS 5.0 manual in my hand right now (hard to type like that:-). I *loved* DESKView and DR DOS.
