Despite the backing of Compaq Computer Corp, the LS-120 floppy drive with a capacity of 120Mb doesn’t appear to be taking off in the spectacular fashion that Iomega Corp’s rival Zip drives did. But now OR Technology Inc of San Jose, California, one of the companies behind the technology, says that BIOS support for the LS-120 is now shipping from the major BIOS suppliers, namely Award Software International International Inc, Phoenix Technologies Ltd and American Megatrends Inc, which should make the integration task easier for OEMs, value added resellers and end-users much easier. The prize of course, is to win the position as the replacement to the humble 1.44Mb floppy drive.
