I hear you joseph. I prefer using the actual hardware from the given timeframe. I like the modern solutions to help me get the images from Internet to floppy media (or hard drives) and for quick access to a given title so I can test it on a certain machine and then transfer to floppy. I also love having all my diagnostic software handy in one place (even though I've got actual floppies of all of them anyway!)
I was actually responding to Ethan's email about wishing there was a ~$60ish cf or sd card for the IIgs.

Actually, I also have it set up to boot off of LocalTalk from one of my powermacs. I really just want a SCSI card so that I can have some permanent standalone storage that's also period-accurate and also literally just so I can play with synthlab-- I can install it on my AppleTalk share, but it turns out synthlab won't start up with AppleTalk active.
