One Unit Whole Blood availability

As far as I can gather, the original One Unit Whole Blood DOS files needed to run BloodGDX (within BuildGDX) can no longer be purchased legally, leaving those who did not buy the game through Gog or Steam in the lurch. I know this is old news but it has shocked me into backing up my Gog files should they decide to pull the option from the store entirely. Is anyone else in a cold sweat? What happens if these files are lost forever, must we use Fresh Supply?

1. If you bought Blood OUWB before it was delisted it should still be in your library.
2. If you buy Fresh Supply on GOG you get OUWB as a bonus download
3. Even if you only got the Fresh Supply release, you can use its files with both BloodGDX and NBlood, the only thing missing are the demos playing on the title screen and the FMVs (which are encoded in a different format on the Fresh Supply release)

Thank you Phredreeke, that has calmed me down!

Randy Pitchford is going to smash every copy of original Blood with a hammer. A hundred years from now, the only version anyone will remember will be Fresh Supply, and you'll be able to play it on a 40k display in perfect quality.

Nerds will never die out. Actually, the most popular version will be a leaked alpha, played on a 10k bit quantum computer running DOSBox v0.77-3.
