Version History:

Another OEM variation of MS-DOS 3.30 with enhancements for the TANDY computer line. There are two interesting contradictions for this release. First, like 3.30a, the minor.minor version designation indicates a specific porting to accomodate the manufacturer's hardware platform, yet this was one of the first TANDY releases that would boot on a standard PC. Second, it was branded as MS-DOS® when in fact it uses the IBM® kernel files.
