HI-TECH Software Frequently Asked Questions
Well, firstly we are developing a Windows user interface. This will be Win-32, i.e. it will run under Windows 95 and Windows NT. But since the compiler is a non-graphical application, and the DOS interface runs quite happily under all flavours of Windows already, it has not been as high a priority as making sure that the basic functionality is top-notch. In other words, we believe an excellent compiler with a DOS front-end is better than an average compiler with a Windows front end.
DOS FAQ by Christoph Fuchs
First, you need a computer which is IBM compatible. The computer should have 640 KB of RAM or even more :)) (in some cases it will work with fewer RAM, too, but I would use more). Then, you need a floppy drive, a harddisk or something simular. It would be great to have a keyboard or a mouse and if you want to see something you might need a monitor... but that's all. For those who always were happy with Windows it might be annoying to type a lot at the command prompt.

Yes, users have reported success with DOS-based Quicken through version 8 (most recent DOS Quicken version). Recent versions may require more memory than is available under the system manager, but it's easy enough to exit the system manager and run Quicken directly from the DOS prompt, or run it in a separate Software Carousel work area. The "disable filer" trick may allow you to squeeze even the latest Quicken in under the system manager.

Windows ME has an installable option that permits the use of a DOS prompt. Please see their help files for an explanation of installing this. Also, you might want to read article Q179644 in the Microsoft knowledge base (http://www.msdn.microsoft.com).
Very well. The DOS/Windows compatibility package for NEXTSTEP/Intel takes full advantage of the 486 microprocessor. Depending on system hardware configuration and type of DOS/Windows application, performance should vary between 386 and 486 native DOS/Windows performance on Pentium systems.
Make Sense Software - Frequently Asked Questions
Although there are still some good DOS based applications around there are many advantages to Windows based applications. Windows based applications are much less "user dependent." If you enter data incorrectly in a Windows based app, it may give you a message prompt, or reject the improper use of that field. DOS based systems tend to require far more vigilance on the part of the user, and lack the "point and click" ease of Windows applications.
Yes. Since NEXTSTEP/Intel is a multi-tasking, virtual memory operating environment, several DOS/Windows sessions can be run at once.
DOS FAQ by Christoph Fuchs

FAQ for On Time RTOS-32
They can run under 32/64-bit Windows if you only use the Win32 API subset supported by On Time RTOS-32 (about 250 functions). The demo programs DLLDemo and W32Bench included with On Time RTOS-32 demonstrate this. Both programs run without recompiling or relinking under On Time RTOS-32 and Windows. Programs which use On Time RTOS-32 features not supported by Windows (e.g. installing hardware interrupt handlers in user applications) cannot execute under Windows.

Yes, and no. By default, Cygwin g++ produces an executable that is a "console application" intended to be run from within the Cygwin environment called bash. If your environment is set up right then double-clicking on the executable in Windows Explorer will run the program in a shell, but the shell will disappear as soon as the program exits (if this doesn't work for you it probably means that the cygwin directory isn't in your path).
