I only have the 486 desktop left, not plugged in at the mo, but I got to get it back up & running -- I miss DOS. . .
You can still use DOS in Windows.
In the search space on the lower left just type CMD and a command prompt option will appear and click on that.
I use it rarely, being somewhat spoiled with point and click.
One time I had file I could not delete. Tried everything in Windows bag
of tricks. Finally went in with DOS, and still couldn't get rid of it.
Then remembered an old trick I was told many years ago and renamed the file an
able to get rid of it then.
To me DOS is like an early automobile. A lot of tinkering around,
adjust this and that, hand cranking, and all just to get the thing going. Now
its just turn the key, put it in gear and away you go.
Yup, I have an icon in my quicklaunch bar to go straight to DOS: If at first y
don't succeed, drop to DOS & do it right.
But they've dropped some commands & I can't run most of my old utilities I fo
d or created to make DOS work just as I wanted.

caveat, of course, is that some of the utilities, especially the older
ones, may not work under 64-bit windows or on the newer disk formats.
