I'd say they got their monies worth for what they paid for the license.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

DOS always kind of made me uneasy not having "grown up" with it.  It always felt like I was operating inside a dark box with strings of alphabetese that I didn't know at all except by clicking or typing Help (or whatever one had to type to get to Help.)

You did better than I. I needed a "help" for "help". HeeHee

I was never more than a beginner at DOS but with it you could get under the hood on Win95 and Win98.  Win7 feels more like an appliance to me, you only have an exterior panel that you can use to make adjusts.

That's a good description of Win7. 

Also kinda like vehicles...older vs newer.  I might get under the hood on much older cars...but the new vehicles: check the oil, fluids, and change the radio presets (if I'm lucky) and that's pretty much it anymore.

So true!  I'd add set the clock and change the disk pads, sure don't miss those drums.
