both are operating systems; one gui based, one not...early versions of windows were really not OSs, but shells for Dos

It does not use the familiar Graphical user interface which windows uses, it needed keyboard entered commands to do anything such as DIR to show you the contents of a hard drive, to make a program run you use to have to navigate to the program manually and type in the name of the program which was usually the executable file which ran it, if it wasnt in the Autoexec.bat or some com file.
Earlier versions of Windows ran "on top" of the DOS and enabled the point & click functuon to replace all that crappy typing.
