It's not enough to say "well I do". You aren't the target audience. How many machines in the last 6 years have been sold with a floppy drive ?
Actually I would rephrase your statement to;
How many new machines in the last 6 years have been sold with a floppy drive ?
From a world standpoint there are a lot of machines that still use a floppy drive as the means to exchange data, limited by today's standard but still a fair method.
So the ability to enable the hardware is a wise decision. It still surprise me as to how some still look at the situation as the only way. World situations, Universal usage should be a applied thought. Not singular!
