Once again Microsoft has issued a shiny new version of MS-DOS, the ancient and cryptic operating system that's used on more than 100 million personal computers. At $49.99, DOS 6.0 is a good deal, but don't expect it to change your life. It has a lot of nice new features, but the new DOS will still flummox newcomers and frustrate veterans with its limitations.

On a recent Friday night, a very pregnant Sheila Dos Santos and her husband were two-thirds of the way through an hour and a half cloth diapering workshop, trying to wrap their heads around the myriad diapering options available to the modern parent. Laid out on the large coffee table in front of them were dozens of types of diapers and covers and inserts, as well as a plastic baby doll to try them on. "I'm so overwhelmed," said Dos Santos, looking down at the 11-page booklet she held in her hands.

Microsoft's current dominance of operating systems is not in the customers' best interest, "Rivals Enjoy FTC Inquiry of Microsoft" (March 20). If you are a PC-compatible user, you have to have MS-DOS or your computer won't run. The current version of DOS is not very well designed. It is not at all user friendly and not powerful enough to do many functions that operating systems for other computers perform, such as multitasking, addressing memory, etc. Microsoft has an improved version of DOS that it has been testing for a long time.

The call came on the eve of his Los Angeles concert, just as he was leaving his home in Mexico. We have your son. Follow our instructions. Don't make trouble. It was a year ago, and Vicente Fernandez was about to headline four sold-out shows at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, his annual Memorial Day pilgrimage to the Eastside suburbs of L.A. Now this voice, saying his 33-year-old son, his namesake, was being held for a ransom of millions.

Along with millions of idealistic young men who were cut to pieces by machine guns and obliterated by artillery shells, there was another major casualty of World War I: traditional ideas about Western art. The Great War of 1914-18 tilted culture on its axis, particularly in Europe and the United States. Nearly 100 years later, that legacy is being wrestled with in film, visual art, music, television shows like the gauzily nostalgic PBS soaper "Downton Abbey" and plays including the Tony Award-winning"War Horse," concluding its run at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Cain Velasquez met with Mexican boxing star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez last month before Alvarez lost a decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. With charisma and looks that brought a strong female audience to supplement his popular brawling nature among men in the blood sport, Alvarez generated with Mayweather a record for pay-per-view sales in the bout. “Canelo has a big fan base. That's good, it shows his overall brand is growing, with more people behind him,” said Velasquez, the UFC heavyweight champion whose family immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico.

Though the SAG Awards may not have the global draw of the Golden Globes and Oscars, that underdog quality can make the red carpet fashion all the more interesting. Not as much at stake means more risk-taking and more chances for lesser-known designers to get a turn. The biggest trends of Sunday night were black, white and dark blue hues, sheer accents, corseted bodices and side-swept Veronica Lake hair. FOR THE RECORD: SAG fashion photos: In the Jan. 28 Calendar, the photos of Jessica Chastain, January Jones and Marion Cotillard on the fashion page of the Screen Actors Guild Awards coverage were credited to Mark Boster of The Times.
A group of angry Thousand Oaks neighbors is fighting to keep a scenic stretch of Potrero Road from becoming another Ventura Freeway. Residents such as Michele Bellerue say their houses are deceptively peaceful at midday, with hawks soaring above the national park across the street and even quail scurrying on the road. But on weekday mornings, the scene changes. The roadway in front of her residence becomes a busy commuter route used by truckers and motorists alike, Bellerue said.

LAS VEGAS - Cain Velasquez not only won his heavyweight title back Saturday, but he did it his way, in a style few expected. Launched by a hard right hand that knocked down and seriously dazed Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos in the first round, Velasquez regained the belt by unanimous decision. Judges awarded San Jose's Velasquez (11-1) a 50-45, 50-43, 50-44 triumph at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
