It seems to me that the annoyance has always been with the more-or-less
implication that Windows 95 "no longer *is* DOS". So, I might be irate if I
were a vegetarian and a new canned food product (the same old ham, or whatever)
were marketed with a phrase like "no longer requires killing animals", and the
"we've already done that for you" were left off. I really don't have a bee in
my shorts over this question, but I don't buy the argument that "no longer
requires DOS" meant "... license". FWIW.
