Well, here's the story (if anyone really cares): I resisted
Win3.1, using it only to play solitaire, but technology obsoleted
my old 386 system. When I bought my new Pentium system, I had
Win95 installed on it, and I have weakened. So now I have the
"blessings" of Windows for the first time, and I am delighted to
be able to keep Xy4DOS running.

Win95, as opposed to Win3.1, tries to force you away from DOS, so
some Win95 users might be as ignorant as I was of how to get
around that.

For what it's worth,
