They don't. I haven't seen a motherboard with floppy interface in over a decade. But you can always use a USB floppy drive.

Yea... I have an old IBM 1.44 Floppy Drive with a USB-1 connector. It works on 'everything'  :-+
Handy, if you come across an old floppy with some important data to rip off!!!

It's funny remembering the older computer magazines that came with a Free 1.44 disk on the cover. 
Often containing some 15 or 20 'useful' software applications, as WELL as booting with a nice HTML interface!!   8)
