Atari 800XL Disk Drive

Nearly forgot about my previous post on floppy disks, specifically the 5 inch variety. Using the 1050 disk drive for the Atari apparently gave you access to a crap-load of other games not on cartridge format. Take for instance, the awesome cover-art of Kikstart on the top of this unit. Elektraglide is also seen poking out of the drive slot. What is with the people who made Atari games not being able to spell correctly?
