Happy Birthday(s): StarCraft 2, MS-DOS, and Anachronox

As noted on ExtremeTech, MS-DOS is 30 years old today, as is was on this date in 1981 that Microsoft purchased the rights for QDOS for a reported $25,000 and launched an empire (thanks Slashdot). There are also two game anniversaries today, as Battle.net notes that it was one year ago today that they launched StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (thanks Ant). Finally, today os the tenth anniversary of the launch of ION Storm's much-loved cyberpunk RPG Anachronox in North America. Tom Hall points the way to an article from last year on The Escapist with a look back at his magnum opus.

Happy birthday Anachronox! One of my favourite ever RPGs. Still have it but I've no idea if it works in Windows 7. Deserves to be on GOG etc.
