Writing novels is such a dos

| More
Game of Thrones writer George RR Martin has revealed that, while writing his fantasy novels about characters inhabiting an ugly, medieval and primitive world, he himself inhabits an ugly, medieval and primitive world - namely that of DOS, the antediluvian operating system he uses to write his work. Appearing on the US chat show Conan last week, Martin said he opted to use DOS over modern operating systems, because he did not want his writing to be automatically amended by spell-checking software. Downtime reckons that even Game of Thrones characters would be using XP by now.
