PocketDOS is based on XT-CE, an IBM PC/XT emulator for Windows CE which emulates a PC with an 80186 processor, 1Mb of RAM, a (S)VGA-compatible display and the standard support chips. This allows most applications designed for PC-compatible computers running MS-DOS to run on the pocket computer. PocketDOS does not emulate DOS (or any other operating system), but is included with evaluation versions of Datalight ROM-DOS 6.22, Caldera DR-DOS 7.03 and FreeDOS. In conjunction with running a 'real' DOS, PocketDOS is able to provide the same level of application compatibility as the original IBM PC/XT, while still allowing the pocket computer user access to all of the features and applications it's native operating system. In addition, PocketDOS is also able to run many other operating systems designed for the IBM PC/XT computer.

I demand to see proof for this assertion otherwise I deem it not to be so and as such I call misrepresentation!
