The "floppy" part refers to the internal media ... so 3.5s were in fact
still "floppy" disks as well.
I remember my elementary school (when i was in 4th/5th grade) having the
Apple IIe's and you were lucky if you sat at one with DUAL 5.25 drives
connected to you didn't have to switch disks for bigger game files.
If we were really well behaved, my teacher let us use the "teacher only"
Apple IIGS and those had the first/original 3.5 drives. In the computer
lab, there was one of the FIRST Macintosh running all the other networked
IIGS's. I remember the lab teacher telling us what a BIG deal it was for us
to have the NEW Macintosh!
