Well, on the Amiga you almost never used the direct device names, usually you used the volume name of a drive, and that would let the system automaticly follow the correct floppy/drive no matter where you moved it to (even in the middle of an operating program) and it made for the neat and useful option of 'assign' a volume to a sub-directory on your rad/ram/hard drive.
