DOS is good for gaming and programming, usually old software on old
hardware (but not always). With various kinds of emulation (or a
native FreeDOS install), it (kinda) works on new hardware too. For me,
it's what I'm used to, what I know (sorta), what I enjoy, so I use it.
But admittedly it's a losing battle (almost).
