    Technically, the poll is incorrect. Neither MS-DOS nor Windows were Operating Systems. In fact, quite the opposite, Unoperating sysems, you might say.

    Windows may be an unoperating system, but DOS is more like an operating nonsystem.

    DOS means "disk operating system", right? The various DOS programs did indeed operate the disks, so that you could access the data, and do things. Today, we still have DOS incorporated into the broader operating system, but it's still a "disk operating system". Whenever we decide to obsolete disks, and eliminate them, then we will no longer have a "disk operating system", but we will still have OSs.

      Runaway's take on technology is always the Arkansasian low-rent trailer trash opinion. I mean, it is nice that his opinion is here, but, seriously, it does not count for much.

        Why is this spam modded? It is not unsolicited commercial messaging. It is not repetitive. It is relevant and useful information. Wait, that is why?

          Runaway only can get a disk to operate in his double-wide. Sad, but true. And, he is a deplorable racist.

    Telling, is it not, that there is no option for Linux, or Minux, or any Unix OS, in the choices? Do you think that maybe, this poll has corporate sponsors? Janrinok?

      Children, poseurs, and younglings! No one ever tested metal with Eniac? No? How about Multics? Would you like to play a game, in COBOL? And no option for the survivor, the winner, the technologically fit Operating system, before which all the others mentioned are mere toys of hobbyists? UNIX! This says an awful lot about the "active losers" of SoylentNews, if the comments here are all we can come up with! But evidently they are. Sad.
