    Microsoft C version 6 or Visual C++ version 1.52 perhaps?

    What are your requirements, besides working under DOS and supporting inline assembler?

    Which brings the question as to what features you want from the compiler - or why can't you use Turbo C?

    I personally wouldn't write a real mode OS, but that's because I've already written a couple in protected mode.

    I'm pretty sure that you will struggle to find anything that is "better", unless you are looking at embedded compilers for x86. I was not immediately able to find something, but that would certainly be the only valid option - and we're probably talking $$$$ for such a compiler.
