1985 is the corrrect year.

For ECC: you are free to change the text, I don't have a final opinion about that, except that ECC was mainy sellers and occasionally technicians (as you have clarified yourself on the AVT page).

I've created a page for MF-DOS, a MSX-DOS 1 clone with subdirectory support. There's an article in the Brazilian CPU MSX magazine where the creator describes how it's done. Albeit that the description in the magazine is about external commands rather than internal ones.

It's a really neat trick and the author really knew how to use the system to its limits. I only didn't figure out what the PATH command does. And also I couldn't restore the prompt to its default value after changing it. I just don't know if a variable of some sort exists that contains the current path.

Investigating old MSX-DOS clones and versions is fun, more to come!

Maybe the PATH command has the same function that MS-DOS/MSX-DOS 2:
"Sets or displays directories that will be searched for programs not in the current directory. PATH tells DOS which directories should be searched for external commands after DOS searches your working directory. DOS searches the paths in the order specified in the PATH command."

Nope. It doesn't display anything. And unfortunately, setting a specific path doesn't let you run files from that directory.

Here's a suggestion for that description table that the pages about each MSX computer have on the wiki: add a line to list its keyboard layout.

For example, the Panasonic FS-A1 has the old Japanese layout, while the FS-A1mkII has the "JIS" keyboard layout. The openMSX calls the old Japanese layout "ANSI-jp", but I don't see why ANSI would standardise anything related to Japanese.

I almost made a mistake here now because I didn't know that the two had different layouts.
