Most kbs dropped the floppys, Yamaha tried the Smart Media card - now history too. As Mt Zimmermann said: "The times, they are a-changin'"
I don;t see it as stripping down as much as upgrading.
Don't take my floppy from me..still the fastest way to swap a file..
Thankfully ..my G70 has it all..Floppy, card, USB for midi and data,,,and Midi in, out and thru...
These are not outdated if they are usable..and they are ..every day...
