My first PC had a CD reader (no burning or DVD's) and TWO floppy drives. I also had a digital camera which took floppies. This was only actually about 10 years ago, my first PC was old when I got it :P FastVoodoo graphics :D

I got a windows 98 floppy... my music teacher at school found it unopened and knows how I like computers and old operating systems and stuff so he gave it to me... the downside is I don't actually have a floppy drive... I might need to salvage the one out of my old XP machine :P

Well since this has been resurrected, I still keep a USB floppy drive and some floppies laying around. I have a couple of relatives who refuse to update and sometimes it's nice to be able to quick make a DOS boot disk.

I still use floppy disks, I have ShadOS Standalone on my best floppy, but that's all I use it for, a cool place to store stuff (even if it only holds 1mb). I use a USB floppy disk and had to edit base ubuntu files to get it to load. What do you guys use them for?
EDIT: Quick hint if you are interested, SSA 0.4A will have a zip file tool.
I have a PC that has a 3.5" floppy reader. I use Mikeos on If. I love the floppI reading noise
