Depends on how well one knows DOS.  i'm always ducking into the command
prompt to run something.  As for actual dos software, my list includes:

email (yes, except for the network interface, it's all DOS based at home!)
Grid locator software
Some RF/antenna design s/w (e.g. DL6WU Yagi designer)
Not to mention various command line utilities that are a part of Windows,
but which I prefer to do at the prompt, because it's less fiddly. :-)

Just to name a few that I use frequently.  For the record, I run Windows NT
4.0 (will have to upgrade to Win2k one day... eeek!), and the listed
software runs perfectly.
