    Why ask this general question? MSDOS is clearly irrelevant when you consider Mac OS Terminal and the POSIX shell.

    I just want to know people's opinions. They did make DOS until 2001, you know.

    EDIT: wait... look at the percentages two twenties, and two forties. um.. isnt that 120%?

    Anyone here old enought to remember CP/M ?? The *boot drive* was always called A: (as in 1st)

    There once was a (soon-to-be-unemployed) MS-DOS person who decided to format a 'floppy' in a CP/M Drive A: :D

    i never used MSDOS and i actually only started learning how to use a computer beyond AOL when Windows XP came out. i was the one in my family that had to know how to fix all the problems :p now i'm the one in the family who knows the most about Macs and was responsible for my parents' switching although i owe my own switching experience to a friend.

    when i did the poll, i had 12.5, 37.5, 25, 25, and 12.5 which is 112.5!

    I think this is the type of poll where if it says X% then X% of voters checked that option. :confused:
