I still have an 8 inch drive lying around. I guess it should go to a museum. The VAX 11-780's used an 8 inch floppy for booting. Better than toggling in the boot code like on the the PDP 8. My first computer experience was on an IBM 650 - anyone remember that one? I remember being at a trade show with a booth model wearing a "I've got Dual Floppies" T-shirt.
Yeah, they didn't hold much data did they? I think back to my first computer and laugh. Hell, I remember my first year of college and the "PC labs". Guys walking around in white lab coats like they were NASA scientists. LMAO. Oh, memories.
