    Just like the real MS-DOS, you navigate around by typing in DIR to list available apps and using the CD command to enter into directories. I must admit, it’s rather fun and nostalgic. If you manage to navigate to the programs folder there’s a camera.exe app that will let you take an ASCII or CGA selfie. There’s even a Rock Paper Scissors game that reminds you of the good old days of Sound Blaster sound cards and CGA, EGA, and VGA display settings with the help of Cortana. It’s all incredibly nerdy, which is probably why I begrudgingly love it. Just type WIN at any point and sit back and marvel at Windows 3.1.

    Sounds like an April Fools prank to me.
