    It may depend on what program you are writing, what programming language you are writing it in, and the users of the program.

    On experience, users *seem* to like DOS programs better than Windows since for the simple fact that they are DOS programs and work unconfusingly!

    Like I said, it really depends on this, this and that. but if you can write an intuitive, easy to use Windows App that the bulk of your users can adapt to, then go for it!
