    I still see DOS used from time to time powering the checkout lanes at a store. Getting to be relatively rare when it wasn’t too long ago that I saw it everywhere (ten years). Saw it recently, too. Think it was last year sometime? Not sure where, didn’t think to make a note of it

    Batch files are still very useful for performing repetitive tasks. Granted, most command-line users play with *nix and the syntax isn’t as pleasant but still handy. 🙂

    Ooh, do you remember Midnight Commander? Fifteen, twenty years ago it was having a surge of interest in the Windows community mostly for being something different.

    Yeah, it’d be nice to be able to provide that filter.
