This exploit has affected a wide variety of systems, including Unix, Linux, Mac, Windows, printers, and routers. However, most systems since 1997-1998 have been fixed, so this bug is mostly historical.
The only windows I know that was affected by this is an unpatched Windows 95 OS.
So even if you send a 65,536 byte ping packet it doesn't do anything anymore.

I think I read an article about the Ping of Death re-appearing in one of the beta builds of Windows 7 or in Vista or something, but for all intents and purposes, yes it is dead. Windows 95 is the only version of windows that had the bug and Microsoft released a patch for it.
I think this is what you're talking about:
