I have internal (ATA and SCSI) drives in some machine, and external USB (250) and FireWire (750) drives, meaning I most of my machines can use Zip drives to perform quick sneakernet data transfer. Still easier and faster than burning CD's, although availability of a fast network does negate their usefulness somewhat.
I have RT-11 on a 100MB ZIP disk, and RSX11 on another. My 11/53
(nee DS550) with RQZX1 likes the ZIP drive just fine.
