 Microsoft has its own keyboard extender available on the MS-DOS
 supplemental disks for MS-DOS 6.22 which can be found at:
 <ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/peropsys/msdos/public/supplmnt/>

 Stan Brown, the former list maintainer, tested only one of the many
 available device drivers that do this, namely BUF160, which extends the
 keyboard buffer to 160 characters. It performed flawlessly for two years
 with MS-DOS 5 and Windows 3.1. It's downloadable as:
