And that, I agree with.

I'm not sure whether I have a PC with a 5-1/4" drive installed, because
it's been an age since I cared about reading a 5-1/4" floppy.  My own
focus is on machines a bit more recent; I focus on things like Suns,
NeXTen, and Alphas.  Occasion to care about floppies - of any size - is
somewhere between "very rare" and "never" for me.

Mind you, that's not an absolute; I would love to find the floppy that
had Uninvited on it, even if it meant playing in an emulator.  And Lode
