Some get them from "connections", occasionally stuff like this turns up on eBay. Please keep an eye on your language.

Yeah, I know. I have four boxes of floppies, one of which is 5.25. These all have software in them, including (dare i say it), dear old muttley on 23 360k floppies! (muttley is multimate, which was in some magazine, rated 29th in a list of 29 word processors for DOS and Windows.)

Muttley migrated to windows, and was lost in the process.

Here is a collection of my original software, not very much, but the most software are my original technet isos.
