Yes, they were common in later PS/2 machines. I don't have a single 2.8Mb
disk but quite a few drives go figure. Don't really see the need for them
now or even back then. Might have helped with OS releases if they could cut
in half the amount of disks you needed, but CDROM killed the need.

Pretty common on PS/2s as well AFAIK. However, I don't think the IBM drives
could easily be used in non-IBM systems...
