Workbench 2.1 Productivity setup - part 3: Optimising the Boot floppy

With modern computers we are used to have storage built into the device, sometimes even cloud-based storage. But back in 1985 when the Amiga was born, storage was usually on Floppy disks.

This is part three of this project where we will look closer at the boot floppy and optimise that limited space while leaving room for saving settings, etc.

Workbench 2.1 Productivity setup - part 2: Preparing the Floppy Disks

With modern computers we are used to have storage built into the device, sometimes even cloud-based storage. But back in 1985 when the Amiga was born, storage was usually on Floppy disks.

This is part two of this project where we will prepare the floppy disks that we are going to need to build ourselves a Productivity setup on a standard Amiga 500.

Workbench 2.1 Productivity setup - part 1: introduction

With modern computers we are used to have storage built into the device, sometimes even cloud-based storage. But back in 1985 when the Amiga was born, storage was usually on Floppy disks.

In this project we will explore how to build ourselves a Productivity setup on a standard Amiga 500, using the built-in floppy drive and if possible a 2nd, external floppy drive.
