Ms-Dos is a quick and dirty operating system, wich shell
( the commands you use to interact with it ) is much similar
to unix but less regular, and single task.
( it does only on thing at a time )
But 20 years ago, unix was too big to fit in a PC.
Windows is a graphical layer above MsDos, but its design is even
worst. ( i have many exemples )
Nowdays, you can use Linux wich is a unix for PC.
It works fine even on a 486, and has many flavor of GUI
and it is completly free.
( no charge and you can see the source )
( Graphical User Interface )
