"What's a floppy disk?"

Something most people outside USA and Africa stopped using 10 years ago.

dylansmrjones, we submit that header to Vt and waiting for his agreement.

We boot it from NTFS-partitions of harddrives, so KolibriOS is 10 years ahead of Menuet from your words...

Just a note: not all files from Menuet and MenuetOS kernel were GPLed and after 3,5 years of work the MenuetOS part in Kolibri is very small.

I really get tired of this attitude. Just because something is old does not make it useless. For example, WinXP still requires a floppy if you need to install hard drive controller drivers. Also, is there really any reason not to have one installed if you already have one laying around?
