inconsistent childish MS bashing

I just noticed the following text in the docstring for buffer-file-type:

  "This variable is meaningful on MS-DOG and Windows NT"

If we're going to refer to MS-DOS as MS-DOG, shouldn't we demonstrate
that we're consistent in our childishness by also referring to Windows
as "Windoze" or "Winblows"?

Alternatively we could use the proper "grown up" names "MS-DOS" and
"Windows NT".
