The vendor I mentioned earlier gets copies of MS-DOS 6.22 for resale
to a vendor of medical devices. It seems that its more cost effective
to secure errant (though legit w/seal of authenticity and all) copies
of MS-DOS 6.22 than it is to port the application to another OS and
then get everything re-certified via the FDA (medical device regulation
is particularly onerous apparently).
So yes, there are things that are still using MS-DOS 6.22 and for good
(economic) reasons. I think that these copies of MS-DOS 6.22 are
keeping his store alive :-).
