  That sentence is really funny. Really. :D

  Moray is not available for win31/unix/linux/X-windows.

  That's not entirely true. They have developed dos a bit since dos6.22
(long filename support under windows, slightly better command.com, etc).
  It's true that micro$oft is trying to drop the command line based prompt
from the OS, and I think that's a big mistake. I really like unix and
X-window because it doesn't try to substitute the commmand prompt but it
supports and strengthens it, ie. it gives more power and more flexibility
and a very verstaile GUI to the command prompt (although it's possible to
use X entirely without it). There are many things that are relatively easy
to do with a good shell script, but are almost impossible to do with a
GUI. I think zsh+X is much more powerful than command.com+win95.
