It true and we hear this answer for some years.
1. DOS is dying and less and less usage will be found for it. I'm puzzled by
the sharp responses on this NG every time this question is raised
2. Long file names are here to stay and if MS will not supply an easy
interface to it I'm sure that some of the highly talented people on this
NG can find an answer.
My main interest are NT programs that need to access Unix drives that are
mounted on NT - long file names are a must. This is just a short description
of the problem.
