FOR has been around in Microsoft OSes for a long time, but bear in mind
that COMMAND.COM (DOS, Win/DOS) and CMD.EXE (NT) are different command
interpreters.  There's a lot of stuff in CMD that's missing or different
in COMMAND.  So stuff that works on NT may not work on Win9x/ME.

NT had that Posix subsystem, ya know, so there was some incentive for the
NT team to make CMD behave as Posix fans would expect.  The Win/DOS team
had no such incentive and was probably much more concerned with lingering
codesize constraints.
