Are you sure you want to run this possibly insecure thing?

I'm not aware of how this killed DR-DOS.
To me, that wording is just pointless because it translates to, "do you want me to do what you just told me to do?" I get that from web browsers all the time - do you want to see the web page you requested or not? Followed by technical jargon that couldn't possibly help any but the most dedicated nerd determine whether there is a security issue with looking at that page.
But I have no doubt we'll see wording like that, and people will just automatically hit "please proceed." The proper wording would be, "You're about to boot something not distributed by Microsoft. If that wasn't your intent, stop now because someone is trying to take over your computer. Otherwise, carry on."
