Any modern Linux distros that can boot from a floppy disk? I used to have Windows 3.1 on a single floppy disk back in the day. Surely Linux can do this, right?

There are 1-2 floppy Linux distros. tomsrtbt, basic linux etc. Some of them are extendable with further floppy images.
Also if you wouldn't compare Windows 3.11 from 1993 with OS' made 15-20 years later that'd be great.

Windows 3.11 for Workgroups was a hack install on floppy disk made by a Chinese MS piracy group called the China DOS Union (they also stripped down Windows 98 SE's copy of MS-DOS and redistributed it as MS-DOS 7.10 under the GPL, with no source code available).

But user, the tech industry doesn't use DOS floppies to upgrade BIOS/UEFI firmware, and any hard evidence you have against that claim is invalid because I am so smart and know everything, hee hee hoo hoo, haa haa. Also you're wrong, my IQ is 128, and inb4 "hurr that's mentally handicapped / retarded," no you're wrong about that too, 128 is objectively a high IQ, doesn't matter if yours is higher, mine is still objectively high.

The burden's on you to disprove the fact that IT firms and PC repair centers still use USB floppy drives for BIOS/UEFI updates, PXE boot images and stress testing. But you can't since you can't even get a job due to your IQ being below 30.

And if your IQ were 128, you'd have stopped posting hours ago.

Well, no, it was drunk people. I've never touched alcohol, it's bad. But you could still say she died from my questionable life choices (retardation would be the wrong word because my iq is 128 lole lole) considering her final words to me were a few texts where she talked about being worried she hadn't been the best mother she could have been to me. I tried to comfort her, but by the time I replied to her texts, she was already dead and I didn't even know until the next morning when my uncle called me and said he was at my dorms and it was an emergency so I came outside and he was like "you'r mom's dead" and I'm like "I'm sorry to have to say this but I need to be alone can you please leave" and then i didn't talk to anyone or attend any classes for a month and had to leave school for awhile
