Re: Anyone still using floppy discs...?!

Why? Quite frankly, I find that justification almost ridiculous.

Why would anyone prefer say, a box/crate/shelf full of 40~80 Blu-ray discs as versus the equivalence in storage capacity of say just a single 1~2TB 2.5" or 3.5" portable/internal HDD?

The differences in physical storage space, speed of access, re-usablity, etc, are huge (and certainly not in favour of BD).

I  think the Blu-Ray disks will work out a little cheaper but the delta is likely fairly marginal. Certainly not sufficient to justify the drastic differences in performance.

I love that I'm free from optical disks. And I'm just gobsmacked to discover that optical media still has such a loyal following here.
