Really surprised by this, to be honest. Feels like this is about a decade too
early. The argument is essentially that actual floppy hardware is nearly
impossible to find any longer and you don’t need the floppy driver for all of
the USB based floppy disk drives. As someone who actually owns a USB based
floppy disk drive but has not owned an actual IDE floppy disk drive for, god,
I’m not even sure how long, at least 10-15 years, but I just think of all the
retrocomputing guys that all still having internal floppy drives. I guess they
will need to run a "period-accurate" version of linux, which is the "correct"
thing to do, anyway.
