Isn't it about time to drop support for floppies soon?
No, floppies are still great, especially on legacy hardware.
Yeah indeed, but I would drop (E)ISA bus support and hardware that uses
(E)ISA. I haven't seen anyone use it for a looong time.
EISA is long dead and can go away
ISA is still used on modern hardware -- anything without USB mouse/keyboard
uses ISA under the covers, along with other stuff.
And you can still buy modern machines with real ISA expansion slots. Core2 Duo
PCs with ISA slots seem a bit weird, but they exist.
You are right, but I think because DragonFly is a small sized project we
should be trying to support the most common modern hardware, instead of
ancient hardware that barely no one uses these days.
