I'm not starting a flame board; I don't want to hear opinions. All I wanna know is what are you currently programming for: Dos or Windows(through any form)? If you don't use either of these... um... I guess just post it below.

Although, realistically Windows is the way to go, I enjoy programming DOS more.

I'm programming neither right now, though.

You know what... scratch what I said earlier... I'd appreciate it if you wrote opinions as well; only if you want to.

Is this subject not a good one? I don't think it's been asked before.

IF i'm writing a program that is usefull or serves and actual purpose, I use the win32 api. If I'm just testing out something new that I've learned or something, I use a plan console app (oh wait, thats not dos ... hrm ... I dont know anybody who programs in dos especially as xp/2k dont support it)

Currently I'm on a project where we use OS-9000, an OS which I think is used mainly in embedded systems.
