Old MS-DOS & WIN Software

One wonders what the OS landscape would have looked like had MS simply
bundled a 32-bit flat-mode DPMI server with MS-DOS when the 386 came out.
Would anyone really have preferred developing for the segmented 16-bit
model?

When MS finally got around to 32-bit support, Win32S was nothing more than
a huge hack.

Cheers,
