Windows as easy as DOS? What a selling point!

An ad in a computer magazine set me to thinking. The ad had a giant headline that read:

"Now Windows is as easy to use as DOS."

If a software program, any software program, makes Windows as easy to use as MS-DOS (Microsoft's disk operating system), we're all in trouble. DOS is the maybe the second most difficult thing in the world to understand (the first being the U.S. tax code), and it is very hard to use.
