I always liked programming for DOS, but Win NT/2000/XP killed DOS. Sad
So I had to learn the Win32API. But I like how DOS gives more control over the PC.

I think DosBox is a great peace of code, it works with all the old dos game i have tryed and its very easy to setup.
Also has my OS, can boot from Dos, it runs my OS fine, good for getting screenshots etc.
