Floppies have the advantage they never die completely. Your floppy drive can cease to work, this won't destroy the data on all your disks at once - and when a disk is itself damaged, there is rarely no way to get back at least some data out of it.
But the shortcomings (slow, low capacity, unreliable, no disks manufactured anymore) outweight the advantages, so apart for nostalgia i see no reason in using floppies in 2016.
As i don't personnally have the nostalgia, sorry for people who wanted adfs out of my game ports, they're primarily for hd use

Anyway even if i wanted to, i wouldn't be able - as i have no working floppy drive anymore...
