Let's put things into perspective. PCs weren't born with HDs just like Amigas weren't born with HDs. For instance on my 1985 PCjr I had the choice of floppy or cartridge. Floppies were cheaper, easier to find, and you could copy and share things with friends. So no. I never found floppies to be annoying (until I got my first HD at least).

Just because you hadn't heard about them didn't mean they didn't exist.
