Huh? Maybe not in your opinion compared to today's gui os's maybe, but it sure as heck was an operating system. I still sometimes drop into cmd to do stuff. It's all we had on PC's before this newfangled windows came into being.

Sorry for the derailment, Cactus.

Yup MS-DOS is most definitely an operating system. Windows 1-3.11 however were not, it was a Graphical desktop interface and application API layered over MS/PC-DOS.
