Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support

Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games for DOS and Windows. However, there are costs to sustain. If you're wondering how to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.

I use the money to:

  • pay hosting and server costs: AbandonwareDOS uses two distinct hosting services: one for the site and one for hosting games
  • replace faulty hardware (I'm not spending anything on new hardware... I mean, old games can run on an old PC, right?)
  • get help from translators (being italian, sometimes I need professional help...)
A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated so far (a lot of people)!
