We show that, in the limit of zero string coupling, g_s → 0, the thermodynamic partition function of matrix string theory is identical to that of the finite temperature, discrete light-cone quantised (DLCQ) type IIA superstring. We discuss how the superstring is recovered in the decompactified R^+→∞ limit.
