Actually, DOS had a lot to offer. On such a machine it was quite fast,
compared to a Unix system with a blown X11 for graphics. On DOS there
were way more small and specialized little programs available, some
quite unique.

I think you cannot compare the two. Linux has its advantages, but DOS
does too. It's all about the software and the use cases. (Think about
computer games.)
