Not really. They didn't hold enough data. A new windows 98 had 32 disks that had to be loaded 1 at a time. Took forever.

No. Those were unreliable fuckers. Hate them.

sort of. I miss the simplicity. I don't miss putting in disk 1, 2, 3, 27, 10, 8, 2, 3, 17, 4, 5... and then starting all over cuz of a power blip.

I just love the Floppy Disk drives... They are the most fun plaything I ever had XD

@SomewhatGerman: did you ever see the video of the guy that tuned old fdds to play songs? I think there's one of the imperial march.
