Windows In what has surprised me greatly, nobody has submitted anything to us regarding this day in the history of computing. Sure, memories of her may not be fond, and with the magical unicorn power of hindsight you'd rather forget you ever dated her so intensely, but she served a purpose. She led a revolution that changed the world forever, and while you may have hoped for a more charismatic leader, I think it's unfair not to honour the fact that she turned 15 today.

DOS is shut off when Win9X VMM starts. Educate yourself and stop spreading false info:

I'm sorry, but the article agrees with me 100%. Nobody can read that article and claim Win95 wasn't a DOS-based OS.

DOS was also completely "shut off" when the WfW3.11-VMM started. It was actually "shut off" when most DOS-applications were running, particularly 32-bit DOS-applications.

Educate yourself and stop spreading n00b-nonsense.
