For some games, it could be faster to switch on the old A500, insert the disk, and play, than to wait for the full Amiga OS to bootup and then run WHDLoad.
but this is true for only a few games. Ever played Moktar/Titus the fox from floppy ?
1 disk, but so sloooooow loading times. Must have used 1-by-1 unbuffered byte read from files of 10 bytes each to achieve such bad speed.
