#TGIQF – The quiz about the floppy disk


The floppy disk turns 50 this year. Initially only intended as inexpensive storage media for IBM mainframe systems, they developed into the afterburners of the home computer revolution. Floppy disks were robust, reliable, much faster than the datasette, for example, and could be found in almost every relevant home computer by the mid-1980s at the latest.

Only the CD brought the slow death of the floppy disk. Instead of a maximum of one and a half megabytes, several hundred megabytes of data could be stored there, which opened up completely new possibilities.

So off to the weekend with a little quiz on the former 16-bit main medium for Amiga, Apple, Atari, C64 and IBM-PC. For a good preparation it is advisable to look back at the floppy disk, but a little nerd knowledge is also required. Have fun!
