Wrong.

And I've been using DOS since MULTI-TASKING MS-DOS 4.0, thank you. I can assure you, DRIVERS ARE REQUIRED. Even for CD-ROM drives running through the IDE channel on-board the sound card (SBIDE.SYS is the driver file, BTW.)

You've got that UID and you don't even know the basics of DOS?

"So yes, Windows has its use, but being productive in 2014 isn't one of them."

You say that while I run four servers, administer an auction website, do support in Google Helpouts, and multiplex four webcams at once while doing that Helpout.

What is your definition of productive? It doesn't seem realistic, by any means.

Uh, DOS most certainly did have drivers. I know for fact you weren't plugging an SB16 into a DOS machine and expecting it t work just by modifying your autoexec.bat and config.sys files. You had to install the drivers for it, first.
