\"IBM released Personal Computer DOS 2.0 on March 8, 1983 together with the IBM PC/XT. The world was a very different place from August 1981; rather than being a big unknown, the IBM PC was now a major force to be reckoned with. The PC/XT cemented IBM’s position in the market. Compared to the original IBM PC, the PC/XT added more RAM and, importantly, a built-in fixed disk.
DOS 2.0 was the first version which had been developed entirely at Microsoft, with design objectives very different from those of 86-DOS. Since 1979, Microsoft had been licensing UNIX from AT&T and marketing it under the XENIX trademark. Microsoft’s programmers were exposed to UNIX concepts and ideas, with DOS 2.0 being very much a proof of the exposure.
The primary developers of DOS 2.0 were Paul Allen (who led the team), Mark Zbikowski, and Aaron Reynolds. The other team members were Nancy Panners, Chris Peters, and Mani Ulloa; only six people developed DOS 2.0. Tim Paterson had returned to SCP and wasn’t involved in the development of DOS 2.0.\"
