Having used Nant extensively I consider the basic framework a lot better
for controling
builds then DOS can ever be. There is logging, fault detection,
conditionals etc. that far
out performes what can be done in DOS (at least in a reasonable way).
Also it integrates with CC.NET for a much better overview of the project.

I had a fairly large project set up and was able to stop building when
dependant projects
failed to compile. Was able to avoid deploying when there was no or only
partly ready
output. I consider it virtually impossible to do that in a DOS scripts.
Note, we where using C# at the time if that matters.
