MS-DOS/PC-DOS 2.00 introduced filehandles, and subdirectories.

What was unique about 3.00? Only thing that I can remember special about
3.00 was that it was the first one where you could include a path as part
of the command to execute a program ("\DOS\FORMAT C:"

3.10 included the undocumented "network redirector", that was also needed
for CD-ROMs, since MSCDEX looked like a network to DOS.

3.20 included full support (not OEM add-on) for 720K 3.5"

3.30 supported 1.4M

3.31 supported drives larger than 32M
