What is the last PC program/game you bought that came on floppies?

I think Win 98 was it for me.


You bought Windows 98 on floppies? What was it 100 disks?


Windows 98 didn't have a floppy disk version. That would be so costly to MS to do that and not worth it to anyone.

It had a full retail as well as upgrade version on 3.5 floppies.

22 and I don't remember ever using a floppy. I know I had some around the house, but I have no memory of using one. Maybe I did.

I don't remember ever getting any software on a floppy, I do have a ton of pictures backed up onto floppies that I really need to do something with someday though.

38 floppies thats rough.
loading XP from cd by prompting it with 6 floppies was bad enough

Lemmings. It wasn't the complete copy (missing a floppy) but I bought it on impulse at a garage sale.

I'm not sure if I've ever bought one. I didn't get into playing computer games until the mid 90's with The Neverhood, Beavis & Butt-Head: Virtual Stupidity, and Diablo. Before that it was just consoles.
