Hardware, Embedded Systems Invented by IBM, the death knell sounded by Apple. Sony has announced it is going to cease selling diskettes altogether, with the last bastion being Japan. Sales will be ceased there too, even though Sony still managed to sell 12 million of them there last year. While Memorex and Imation still produce and sell diskettes, this move by Sony surely means it won't take long for the rest of the market to vanish, too.

Sorry, I don't share your opinion of "good riddance". The fastest easiest (IMHO) way to install NT based additional drivers will always be the floppy (just try to do that with a flash drive, go ahead, knock yourself out)....That may only be one example I can immediately think of, but it's a big one...
