Well, with Windows 98 and ME Dos was used to bootstrap the Windows OS,
to load it, but it wasn't pure Dos as we understand Dos. You could
however run Dos applications through the Windows command line shell,
command prompt, as you can with later Windows operating systems, but
Dos, the operating system, was not really a fully functional Dos
operating system like shipped with Windows 95.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP, however, have no Dos in them. They are
built on a completely different kernel, and the command prompt was
provided for backwards compatibility with older Dos applications and
various command line utilities.
