Semi-erroneous name for a command prompt in Windows.

Near as I can tell, it derives from DOS, where one would generally boot from their primary hard disk (invariably called the C Drive and be presented with a prompt that looked like "C:\>", indicating the drive they were on and their location in the directory tree.

Considered fairly obsolete, even amongst old DOS hats.
OK, now type 'dir' on the C prompt....
