And DOS commands are still quite useful. I find myself teaching younger admins DOS stuff on 'doze cmd.exe more and more. Sure, Powershell exists, but it's not ubiquitous yet, and oft-times Powershell running files as scripts is disabled by default, so batch files are still pretty useful (even if it's just a batch file to enable Powershell scripts and run the argument as a script).
