Warren, beyond the "commercial" aspects of the device, this is something
I see very necessary for the preservation of old computers. My world
(unfortunately) revolves around MSX, TRS-80, Apple and like. If I find hard
to have good 5 1/4 disks, I can imagine people talking about DEC, VAX and
like. DC-600 and DC-2000(?) tapes seems to last forever, but your milegage
may vary. I think the construction of a kind of universal device for floppy
emulation is the next step into old gear preservation.
