Default Printer Drivers

I run DOS software and need to buy some new printers. Every one I look at says it is only Windows compatible. Can anyone point me to a printer I can use under Windows and also DOS? Any help greatly appreciated.
Regards GeoffL

Your best bet is to examine your DOS apps and see what printers those apps support in dos. If you don't know, ask the vendors of the apps or examine the printer support documentation included with the application. Once that info is determined, then also check to see if the printer model has support in Windows. It may be a tough challenge but I suspect there are several dot matrix models that have support in Dos and Windows. Not many (if any) of the newer cheapo inkjet models will have dos support.
