Maybe, but perhaps not "vastly" at this late date and age. Many
commercial customers probably maintain large libraries of tapes for
magazine-feed tape drives. Show the average guy on the street a
5.25" drive and he's likely to think it's a new type of DVD unit.
The number of classic computer enthusiasts is a very small portion of
the overall computer-using community.
