Although I don't use an outliner myself, those things get discussed often enough over on the LyX users mailing list for me to remember them happening.
Mr. Litt seems to prefer vimoutliner[1].  I assume vimoutliner runs in vim, inside of a text terminal (or in gvim GUI if you are so inclined), so vimoutliner  may be closer to the DOS environment you remember.
The 'Fragility' thread[2][3] lists a few different outline tools, and some of Mr. Litt's essays on outlining[2], which may include other outline tools.
