I was asked by some dude online today as to what the difference was between typing
cmd in the Start -> Run menu. To repeat my answer to him:
commandis basically the 16-bit command-line interface. It is essentially a legacy application.
cmd, on the other hand is the 32-bit CLI, and is comparatively modern and more user friendly.
cmdwill recognise long filenames, quoted filenames etc.
cmdprovides auto-completion (type the first letter and hit TAB repeatedly to provide autocomplete choices).
cmdprovides command history support - UP and DOWN arrow keys cycle through previous and subsequent entries in your command history..
... and so on.
All in all, do not use
command. Always use
