"MS-DOS 2.0 was a milestone for Microsoft, supporting the capacious 180 and 360 kilobyte floppy disks of the IBM XT and its clones."

Back in 1980, Commodore had 512K and 1MB floppy drives. (the 8050 and 8250 if I recall) It's a bit off-topic, but I still wonder what the world would be like if Commodore hadn't been so mis-managed. They were so far ahead of everyone for most of a decade..
