OSOpinion: "We tend to focus on the cutting edge of technology, with the unspoken assumption that the cutting edge is best. Sometimes that assumption is not warranted. For example, the wheel is not going to be replaced by magnetic levitation on a large-scale basis any time soon. DOS is still alive in embedded systems, where the task to be performed gets better press than the technology behind it. However, the relegation of DOS to obsolescence is premature." -Kelly McNeill
