To do so you would have to make an X Window System for DOS first. I am
very confident that this would take a lot longer than installing Linux (or
jobbing for a while to purchase an additional harddisk) -- even if you
managed to port this over to DOS (where a lot of the UNIX facilities
GNOME just expects are missing).

regarded as a criminal offence.                  -- Edsger W. Dijkstra
