In case you're wondering - I prefer the term 'diskette' for the 3.5" variants, and reserve the term 'floppy' for the 5.25" and 8" variants, for obvious reasons. Being born in 1984, I have used the 3.5" variant for more than a decade for various purposes - most notably as a medium to install boot loaders onto; poor man's GRUB, if you will. Of course, document storage was its prime purpose. And, I still have my original MS-DOS 6.0 diskettes, as well as the diskettes for Windows 3.0.
Instead of writing a long history of the diskette and floppy, I decided to tear open one of my floppy drives and take some random high-resolution shots of the internals. Why? Well, I had never taken a floppy drive apart before, and was curious. Do I need any other reason?
Let's talk memories in the comments, shall we?
