I've never had any experience with MO disks/floppies(?). Today, i received my first ones. Found a local ad and someone sold 15 MO disks for few bucks. (4x640MB + 11x230MB) As i do want to collect one working example of every removable medium and eventually do benchmarks and describe drivers situation in every operating system, i already had one MO internal SCSI drive on the shelf from earlier.
I remember so vividly how i walked through the stores as a kid and saw those "600MB+ floppies", which was pure magic to me. At that time, we had a 286 with 40MB HDD at home...
Today is the first day i see, hear and feel how this medium works! Everything is a new experience, while at the same time, strongly connected to the feelings i had when i was a just a little boy in shop dreaming.
Now looking through these disks. Lots of copies of win95, win98 and office 95 installers. Also saw Norton Commander 4.0 and 5.0 on some disks. Maybe there will be something archivable and interesting, we'll see...
"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - And i intend to get every last bit out of it even after loading every damn driver!
