I don't think DOS has run anything since the demise of Windows 95. The command window doesn't run DOS anymore.

I'm definitely a DOS baby, I use the hotkeys wherever possible. AFAIAC the best thing about windows is alt-tab switching and everything else is window dressing.

I still have a Win 95 PC for running old DOS programmes. All the freebie software that can be used on the 16-bit Suzuki ECUs was written in DOS, I'm gradually writing Windows apps to replace them but I won't be retiring that PC for some time.

You can still open the command window in windows 7 which gives you access to DOS commands.
