MS-DOS = Microsoft - Disk Operating System

DOS isn't one program it has many programs in it, now a days most people don't use it. Unless they absolutely have to. Depending on the version of DOS you have, will depend on the programs available. So if you have questions about a particular program, fire away and I'll try and answer them or somebody here will. Enjoy :D

DOS is the old operating system on which the current Windows is based. It isn't used much anymore because of the Windows environment which is way more user friendly than the DOS command prompt. However, some programs still use DOS to run. For example, I manage my MySQL database on this computer using the DOS command prompt. You can also pass along some parameters to a program using DOS. For example:

C:\>program -p -f -v

But as said, the need of these kind of commands is rare.
