    On modern machines yes. If you can get older equipment and find the right programs, you can use DOS to program and even write GUIs. It's more secure to use older equipment over newer equipment, especially if you're paranoid of everything. But it's just not going to hold up in the modern day and age where people do things like signing in and out of users (DOS is one user at a time), using internet browsers, and gaming. It's obsolete technology that's still useful, but only if you care enough to learn it and use it for primarily programming.

      Although TECHNICALLY, You COULD use DOS to CREATE a Multi-User authentication shell. And as for gaming : https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=best+dos+games

    DOS as an operating system has been obsolete for 20+ years.  However, the type of functionality comparable to DOS is still available in current versions via the Windows command prompt.

      But only when the CLI is run as an Admin User ID, since DOS was the only file utility system running, while the Win CLI is still an underlay of the graphical OS.

       Hi. No.

       It's BADLY outdated, but it's far from obsolete. Apparently You haven't searched for free games o download recently, or set up a virtual machine for a younger child / teen to keep them occupied without damaging Your own system.

       It's also extremely useful for anybody who's learning to program, or writing a book or screenplay & wishes to focus on the work instead of a fancy piece of software

    .

       Plus, there are actually tens of thousands of pieces of software still freely available for it, that can perform functions a thousand times faster than over-bloated Windows software can because of the raw nature of the programming that doesn't waste coding lines to draw pretty hi-res boxes to ask a question or display an answer.

      And if You consider the differences in chipset commands since it's last release - which was also just a Windows subpart technically (DOS8.# on the WinCD)
      without the Windows shell licensing EULA, just ... XXXTREME F'ING WOW !!!

    That is the portion that has been successfully hacked, unresolved, and used by government to falsify legal information since 2001, February.

    no,

    default operating system is essential for booting up graphical operating systems, and bridging between CMOs iteration of it and whatever OS you actually use.

    it is not main OS you'd use however it is imperative for operation of your computer.

    I haven't heard of one for awhile, but servers can only handle so much traffic. So I'm sure it still happens occasionally.
