    I use floppies to save because I'm still using quickbooks 2001 and the only quick save option it gives you is to use a floppy.  I could save to the hard drive but then I would have to save to a cd after that  and its just easier to pop a floppy in.

      I used a Floppy about a month ago while helping a patron at the library where I work. Must of the patrons that come either use floppies or they just don't save. I, personally use flash drives or e-mail it to myself if I don't have a flash drive with me. For music I use CDs.

        still keep a few floppies around for namely:
        Emergency Diskette
        Desktop Tools(love that game  ;D)
        Get Saddam(another fun game)
        Batch games, so i dont waste space on my USB
        and as Temporary storage if my USB drive gets full.
        If you dont know DOS, you dont know Windows...

        Thats why Bill Gates created the Windows NT Family.
