Not really related to the subject... but you can get non-Dos disk icons on a Workbench sometimes on hard drive systems with no floppy plugged in,

They're really just orphaned .info (icon) files that are pointing to HD partitions that have just been removed.

On topic, some demos came in non-DOS formatted floppies, and the coding crews wrote their own loaders. Reason was, they could keep the continuity of the demo playback, loading up the next bit as the current one played.

They weren't just ripping games. They were making art too.
