Use scripts all the time.. DOS not so much, maybe not since like the late 80's, unless you're meaning a console. But yea, some are the more traditional batch files, a couple VBS, but mostly they're PowerShell scripts now, just blows batch files out of the water and (for me, just an opinion) is just a bit better than Bash at it.
Does anyone find DOS or creating batch files productive in their day-to-day work? What tasks did the batch files accomplish?

I gave up on batch files back in the mid 90s as VB was much more powerful. While I agree that there can be some uses for batch files, I find that even for quick things using a full language gives me the control that I like.
