Since floppy drives get optional in many computers and more and more machines have the ability to boot from USB, it get's more interesting to have an USB key instead. Also because it's smaller and not that wulnerable. Also the pricing of these small items get more and more interesting. The USB Keys are formatted with FAT and thus accessible by nealy all operating systems around.
