    People who are non-power users, people who support hardware devices
    which use them and which cost too much to scrap and replace.

    If I could find a good way to attach old 8 inch floppies to a PC using
    reasonably available hardware I would, it would allow me to retire what
    I use now. Since there's money in being able to do that, I do.
