Dual O/S (Freedows) but where?

I like old linux distributions, and want to save them from disappearing from ''digital world''.I would like to try Dual O/S (former Freedows)which was very very user-friendly and which is similar as Windows XP,something like Linux XP.So if someone have it I would like to make deal about downloading from server,or sending via postal mail.
Thank you on future answers and best regards

The problem with old distros is that they suffer bit rot and either won't work on later hardware properly, or are serious security risks. It looks like Freedows is out of business (not surprising, getting people to pay for Linux is like pulling teeth), and I can't find any mention of "Dual O/S" anywhere. Must not have had many users.
