Well, I have tried in all kinds of DOS modes - and ver says Win95 in
all cases... and why not ? Win95 is Win95 - also when it emulates DOS :-)
Calling an emulator version 7, is quite strange - but OK, if that's
what MicroSoft wants :-)

OK - it does have the name 'DOS 7' too...

Of course - Win95 is hardly any improvement over DOS
