First they try to KILL the DOS interface with XP (although it's still somewhat there, it's not as functional as in win9x and the likes). Now they are trying to revamp their command shell? I'm so confused, but thats just me.

DOS was "killed" by XP because it was the first OS for corporate and home users built on the NT kernel. DOS in emulated in all versions of NT which is part of the reason for the functional differences.
