5.25″ Floppy Disc

A couple of months I posted this picture to my Flickr account:

5.25" Floppy Disk Drive

It’s a fine photo, and I did a great job of masking off the background so you only see the floppy drive unit.

It’s also my most-frequently viewed picture there now.

Why? Do people who only used 3.5″ floppies, and for the last four years only USB drives, really not know how lousy these things were?
