My first desktop computer had no hard drive and I used to have to constantly switch floppies back and forth to use WordPerfect. I still have the big floppies, which were called "floppies" because they were, well, floppy . .
When a 100MB hard drive came out, a good friend asked me why I needed that large a hard drive. He said, "you'll never fill that up!"
Long ago, my pride and joy was a Zenith laptop which had a huge 20MB hard drive! I still have it in my garage.
