I also have a box of the DEC 8-inch if needed.

Fun story to go along with this topic.  As part of the VMS engineering team that dealt with a number of customer issues the following happened.

We got a call from a customer who had not made a back up of his system disk and they needed an ancient version of VMS.  We had the VMS version but getting the 8 inch floppy took more time.  We made two copies.  As an FYI this was the first time the system ever went down.
