Copy your SNES games, or download roms from the internet and play them on the original hardware.

You go back in time to 2006 when they were last relevant. Why the fuck does this thread even exist?

Win3.1 came on 11 floppies already.

Mostly just Word, Excel, and PowerPoint docs.
I mostly used Zip disks when I could. 100MB storage was amazing. Hated the fact that they weren't more widespread, and shortly before flash memory really started to become popular, I carried around a USB Zip drive (this was like 2002 or so).

OSR2 95 comes on like 26 disks, so probably.

yeah it was win95 then, i installed it on a 256 grayscale thinkpad back in like 1999 or so. it was definitely somewhere in the range of 25-33 disks, not 39. i think a few disks were for optional features.
the laptop originally had os/2 on it, but it was one of the older versions; win95 was an upgrade, not a sidegrade.

by 2006, USB was entirely ubiquitous and 2GB flash drives were like $60
you could get 512MB drives for like $20
using Zip in 2006 was kinda retarded

The original Mac OS took up 64K of ROM and less than 400K on a floppy disk. In fact the floppy had room for a few applications.

Think about that the next time your browser takes up 1GB to render a 150MB web page so Pajeet's 1,001 JavaScript includes can animate a fucking ad you don't even want to see.

Now? Fuck all, it's obsolete media. 20 years ago? A fuck tonne.

How do you even use this?
You insert it into a floppy drive you retarded cunt. Does optical media baffle you just as much?

I had disks with multiple dos games on them, at the time they could fit. One was a game show disk that had Concentration, Jeopardy, Family Feud , Wheel of Fortune and Monopoly. All of them fit on the disk.

Text files are still small.
Simply hardly anyone ever uses them, since the world has grown accustomed to WYSIWYG editors.

This. Saw the ads all the time, but literally no one had one.
People generally went directly from 1.44MB to 650MB in the late 90s.
