It's time to pay last respects to the floppy disk.

This is a shame, considering there are still some things you can only do (conveniently) with a floppy disk.
Installing drivers for SATA drives during Windows XP installs comes to mind - something that I have to do with some regularity, and will likely continue to have to do for at least several more years.

ebay : the future : shortage of floppy disks results in very high prices on unopened packages of floppy disks.
is it too early to invest in a few thousand for future ebay sales? :)

Neither my laptop, nor the family desktop have floppy drives.
The latter does not even have CD ROM drive.

I just built a PC for someone, and almost bought a combo floppy drive/card reader for it. Then I realized that the motherboard doesn't have floppy support. (But it has serial/parallel).
