yes, people generally mean floppies when they say floppies.

lots of people use floppies.

i build *ALL* of my debian servers using floppies and a network card.

that's because most of my servers don't have CD-ROM drives because
they're a waste of a drive bay in a server. CD-ROM drives also cost
about the same as a 128MB SDRAM so, given a choice between a CD-ROM
that never gets used and some extra memory for my server, i will always
choose the RAM.
