Get your DOS on!

DOS for Dummies (3rd Edition)

For those of you of a certain age, DOS knowledge was essential if you wanted to use those fancy programs like LOTUS 123, Wordstar, and other early office software. Back then everything was command line, and knowledge of DOS around my office made you one of the top geeks. Even though Windows was around in the very early days of personal computers, I don’t think it was a norm in offices until the early to mid 1990s. I remember when I started back to work after having kids, and all of sudden everything was Windows. It took me quite a while to adjust given my previous experience.

There very well might be a reason why someone would want to learn DOS.   The information in this book is readily available without having to make space in the crowded computer section for this ancient book.  A small/medium sized public library’s computer section reveals the library’s relevancy, so effort should be made to keep it up to date.

I just love the cover, though.  It definitely looks like computer clip art from 1985!  Gotta love the $5 price tag.
