The *imac's* don't have 3.5" floppys. If you're a
high-end user or a professional you probably have a
G4... I think Apple's rationale was that imacs are
EASY: for people who want to take it out of the box,
plug it in, get on the net and check their email
without a hassle. Plus the standard "use" disk has
evolved from the 3.5" to the CD-R, CD-RW, Zip & Jaz
formats... 3.5" disks will go away very soon, just
like 5.25" disks did.
