    they;re not new. the os 9 booting ones are still the old MDD models (ie no
    airport extreme, no firewire 800 etc...)

    It was you. They finally listened. Didn't you hear? The new Power Mac
    G5s are all coming with SuperDrives as standard, so they'll be able to
    read and write 800KB _and_ 1.4MB floppy disks.

    Yeah, Mac OS X s, i hope the new powermacs will be able to boot the
    original System 1.0. Fits on half a 400k floppy, none of the bloat OS X
    has.

    Yeah, those, too, along with 5 1/4" disks, punch cards, and that awful
    tape that got your pants all oily if you put a roll in your pocket.
    Even 78 rpm phonograph records.
