Modern Windows, yes, for the last decade. Whenever a write-up of a Windows shell function goes as far as doing a bug history, I still cover all the 32-bit Windows versions that run on DOS, but that's it for my involvement even with the old Windows, let alone with DOS.

Never tried, never knew, and never saw that supporting it should be a DOS programmer's general responsibility no matter how good it might be. And I kept to the latter view even while helping Caldera's anti-trust suit.
