Windows 8 iconography seems to suite the floppy disc.

It has to be fake. 3711 disks is a LOT! But it's a very well done fake. They even have the Copyright Microsoft Corporation text. :)

 

On the other hand if it is real, there are 3 nutcases involved. The nut who thought about it, the bigger nut who approved and actually created it and the biggest nut who buys it. :D

I am going to ask on Microsofts website if Windows 8.1 can be ordered on floppy drives :D

 

I hope they don't start calling me a troll

AHHHH!  *Throws out whole package*

 

I had to rely on these for school. They demand care as if an expensive item, yet they can be had for a few cents.

I am asking in Microsoft.com's support forum to see if they can be ordered :laugh:
