Dell dropping Floppy drives

By on
We all saw [URL=http://biz.yahoo.com/ibd/030205/tech_1.html]this one coming[/URL]; after all, do you really use your floppies often? IMHO, the only reason they haven't been dropped already is because of the lack of a versatile replacement for them... 1.44mb is almost nothing, but works for a simple Word or Excel document and you can re-write on diskettes as much as you want.

In the other hand floppies aren't reliable while CD's are, but I wouldn't consider those as versatile, then the rest of storage media isn't as widespread... quite a dilemma.

And so, what’s your take on this? Post your [URL=http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=4206]comments[/URL] here.
