Anything where serious work needs to be done. Playing with graphics is all
very fine, but it takes an incredible amount of processing power to follow
the clicky-flashy path. No finesse, and ever-larger programs to perform the
most trivial functions.

I would have to agree with many of these. But I think DOS should always
be used in conjunction with Windows instead of replacing it. But then
again this depends on the scanario.

Do newer PC's yes with XP still have DOS written on their BIOS chip? I
have not tried it yet, but is it possible to wipe out XP on a newer Dell
or whatever and get back to a plain DOS prompt? Most PC people claim
that XP/2000 whatever does not have any DOS below its OS like Windows 98
or have any DOS instructions on its ROM BIOS chip but I do not believe
it. I have not tried inserting a DOS boot floppy, and testing it for
myself. In my 98 machine I can boot from a floppy, wipe out the hard
drive, partition and then do a format C: /s and the machine will boot
with only DOS. I ...Who uses still uses MCA RS/6000s?
I am trying to gage the usage of MCA RS/6000s these days. I'm working
on a web site that will cover RS/6k basics and provide modern free

note if you do use these machines.

What am I doing wrong? I read this in the manual:
plot 'file' using 1:($2+$3) "%1f,%1f,%1f"
which led me to use the above. I assume the format stuff
is not needed.
If I am doing this wrong, how do I modify a given column
to be plotted arithmetically?
