Mac vs DOS

I have found that DOS (w/ or w/o windows) offers the most flexibility and
always has a lower initial cost than Macs.  Maintenance costs are about
the same.  In addition, more people are familiar with windows machines
(not DOS here) so there is less training time.  You may want to go into a
local computer store (NOT a superstore that happens to sell computers) to
get more specifics.

Generally speaking, DOS machines have more programs, flexibility, and
competitive prices than Macs.
