    Expert person requires who knows dos commands well & also if the system goes malfunctioning s/he can handle properly. Here dos based system means, is it C based/ foxpro based package and also OS name is required.

    They may want more of a command line system. This allows more control as long as you have a well trained person. In the wrong hands, one bad command can take down a system just as easy as a virus or malware.

    I would be very curious to know at this point in time would any hospital have a system that is DOS based?

    I agree Charlie. With the type of system need to run a hospital why would it ever be done as a DOS system. I could see a small single video store being DOS, but the scope of a hospital? I'd like to meet the person who chose this direction.

    @Todd. I do not think the person that chose this direction is still working there (or anywhere)

    I know several persons whose office still now using foxpro 2.6 on dos based system. Even they use dosemu to run the foxpro based customized packages on Linux. Because of that, foxpro works as front-end and as well as back-end also. However, obviously it is their choice.
