Re: [opensuse] legacy device support on modern motherboard and linux

I have only used USB serial adapters and they do work just fine

Work, agree. Just fine, debatable. I've read far more than once in recent years complaints from people who can't make their serial devices work via serial to USB adapters. I have plenty of serial ports but no serial devices matching such reports, so can't confirm any reports I've seen.

Floppies on motherboard ports did still work last I checked. Mostly I only use floppies to boot DOS or dump minimal logs during failed installations. Bugs like https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=773058 keep me hopeful support not requiring a USB interjection hasn't yet been lost.
