Quite some MSX machines came with a collection of disks (or tapes) with system software, DOS, utilities, demos, etc...
Recently someone asked me if I could make a special section on my download site for this. Although I would love to, I am already busy enough with my sites as it is.
But, since it does sound like a very good idea, I would like to check here if someone would be interested in making such a collection and sort them in a logical way. Maybe someone already even has made such a collection.

Anyway.... Anyone interested in helping to get this section setup?

Weren't a lot of these packed with the blueMSX system ROMs? Not sure how original all dumps are though.

I have a lot of original disks that came with the computers, but you want to come here for many other software, so we could combine it.

Yeah, I can help. I have some original system disks, not many.

Indeed, it seems there is a huge bulk of disks (& .ROM's) available there. But then I would still need someone to help to sort & name these disks in an appropiate manner.

/edit/
Just downloaded all .ZIP's from http://bluemsx.msxblue.com/resource.html.
It seems most are "just" .ROM's, and a minority contains systems disks. But, it still needs sorting out. And, yes... I also wonder for example how "original" these disks are. There are even disks (and a harddisk file) for the NMS8260?
