    There is already a current thread about this very subject.

    Apparently, scanning beyond page one is as obsolete as floppy drives themselves.

    i used my A: drive about a week ago
    [i used a zip disk most days this week, which is still a very big floppy disk]

    i86 PCs kinda need floppy drives due to the highly variable hardware combinations that could be made.
    and as cds aren't rewritable they can only act as a read only boot device, which is often not ideal.

    on the other hand,

    macs haven't shipped with floppy drives for half a decade or so now,
    new macs all have burners as standard so the cd can completely replace floppies.

    If you'd like to post in the other thread we could have two identical topics at the top of page one.

    Very exciting.

    Wouldnt it be cool if floppies got replaced with a MD drive because i think they are magneteic disks and can be written and erased.
