No, it doesn't.  And probably never will (emacsclient does not work at
all in the MS-DOS port).

But I agree with Jason and Juanma: replacing the above symbol with
just WINDOWSNT gains very little, but obfuscates the condition being
tested.  If anything, I'd support the opposite changes: replace each
and every ugly system name such as WINDOWSNT with a meaningful symbol
whose name would explain what is the underlying (mis)feature.
