Very definitely no. I stopped buying floppy disks well over 10 years ago when I started buying blank CD-Rs. When I needed a floppy disk, I just re-used old ones. I remember booting from burned CD with ASUS T2P4 motherboard after a firmware upgrade(=perfect floppy emulation). I was pretty excited b/c that meant I did not need/want to buy any more floppies, and I was running out old stocks. I was not concerned about the cost b/c CD-R was well under $2/disc and I only needed handful of disks for drivers. For organizing clutters, having one less different thing was worth some money. I think that was around 1997 or even earlier maybe. These days, I am in the process of getting rid of CD-Rs and DVD+-Rs, and replacing with SATA hdds. Those hard drive "toaster"s are god sent.
