I've touched such a disk once. They were used for backup in a local bank back in the beginning of the 90'es - and the system ran OS/2 (which I kinda thought was cool, because I used that at home).

I have a couple tacked to my wall at home, and an old reel to reel tape backup.

Or the stuff real power users had... 21MB Flopticals!
