Yes, I remember that. A friend was harassed for buying a 10 MB drive
since they thought he would never need that much internal storage.
Those dual floppy days, and the first 10 to 20 MB hard drives, were
the good old days for the "personal computer".  I had to create
printer drivers for various word processors to get PC-Write and
WordPerfect to print correctly on dot-matrix printers. I worked with a
small DEC mainframe back then. A few years later I was writing a RPG
programming editor - designed to make sure you get the command codes
in the correct columns.

My first hard drive was 30 MB.  I also used PC-Write at home.  I used
Wordstar 2000 & Word Perfect at work.  I also maintained mini-computer
systems, including DEC VAX 11/780.
