Are all external floppy drives much-of-a-muchness, or are there different qualities to look for? For example, some list a whole lot of "compliant standards" or more operating systems required - does any of this matter and, if so, how? Thanks.
Feel free to assume that I won't know what you are talking about...

FDDs are pretty much on the way out, there are a few applications that still use fdd like the diagnostic tools downloaded from the hdd manufacturers site, memtest 86 downloads for a bootable fdd. But a fdd is pretty much a fdd.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
