fuctionality is the same. the best thing about using cmd.exe vs command.com is the abilty to use long file names.

I believe in 95/98 the dos prompt is started by using "command" not "CMD".

You can also paste things into the cmd prompt. Hyflyr is right. There is no cmd in 95/98.

cmd is the windows xp command line shell. I think command is for legacy compatability but is doesn't provide the same functionality as cmd.

Neither are dos, if you want to run a dos environment use something like dosbox.

Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine

ntvdm.exe is process that belongs to the Windows 16-bit Virtual Machine. It provides an environment for a 16-bit process to execute on a 32-bit platform.
