I know, I meant to say the computers that came with MS Windows were a technological leap over PCs that had the MS DOS operating system.

ah thx for clarification. Kinda depends on when/what you were talking about. For awhile when Windows was still getting big, many people used the same PCs and either did or didn't have Windows on it. In fact, until Windows 95, Windows wasn't even an operating system, really. It was just a GUI that "sat on top" of DOS.
