Linux To Bid Goodbye To Linux Floppy Drives

59

Jiří Kosina, the Czech Linux kernel developer in charge of the floppy drive driver, said he  no longer had working hardware. “Actual working physical floppy hardware is getting hard to find, and while Willy was able to test this, I think the driver can be considered pretty much dead from an actual hardware standpoint.  The hardware that is still sold seems to be mainly USB-based, which doesn’t use this legacy driver at all,” wrote Linus Torvalds on a discussion thread.
