Lots of folks don't think floppy drives are useful anymore.
Anybody trust a Windows BIOS update? How about an on-line BIOS update?
I don't...

Still doing the floppy thing myself. Don't use it much, 'cept for old drivers for old equipment...

Done it many times. I have had many more failures from a floppy based update than Windows-based. I'm not sure if it was due to a bad floppy or what, but those are my stats.

What about a drive emulator? Many boxes no longer come with an A:/ drive. Therefore I have been forced to use the emulator. It works quite well.
