I think you mean DOS 3.2. At least windows v1.0x could multitask well
behaved (i.e. i/o through BIOS) text mode applications. (On my V30 machine I
used to compile in the background while playing C-robots in the foreground
on an 800x600 interlaced display). Multitasking had to wait for
windows 3.0to reappear, and then you needed a 386.
