Please stop believing everything that you are told!
I bought PC-DOS 1.00 when it came out.
I continued to use PC-DOS 1.00 until 1.10 came out. Unless you are
calling me a liar or delusional (Hmmm. an option), how can there be any
doubt about whether PC-DOS 1.00 existed?

I purchased my PC-DOS copies from Computerland (authorized IBM
peddler) and from IBM's retail product centers. I have a few unofficial
early products, but my PC-DOS 1.00 copies were as "public" as it was
possible to be.
