Fun fact it was the same with Windows 95 in the western world.
It just came out when affordable CD burners started to become available.
If you bought a new PC back then it came with Nero which was able to clone the Windows 95 installation disk right out of the box.

Was watching something about win95 cd media instatll.
Dude says that music cds weren't data media. But, in reality, music cds are
and do contain data. So anyway, the history of how MS created a boot-able
data cd. Somewhat interesting. As one could boot a floppy, the quest was
to create a bootable installation cd.

Win95 'upgrade' you had to find 3.1 floppy media and use a few commands to install from
the upgrade cd. sys.exe / something.

My uncle lent us his win95A, on 24 or so floppies for installation, we had a cd-rom but that was my only way to leave DOS/Win 3.11 land. My god the length of installation...a whole afternoon+

My mobo for my FX-8350 octocore still has ps/2 entries for the keyboard and mouse, I wish I had a ps/2 mouse at least, I tried converters but they don't work with my flashy lights mechanical keyboard and now I have a wireless mouse, it would save on the usb ports being used on my desktop, had to buy a thing that fit in my box's unused floppy bay (box bought in 2006, this had 4 different mobo/cpu in it, it's great and sturdy) that had 4 additional 2.0 usb ports, since the board has 6 usb port extensions available, I forgot the specific name for these, anyways, I wish they were 3.0 but what can ya do, they're good for gamepads and charging vapes and shit and the stereo/CD/turntable/tape player all in one I got, so they're not useless. Still wish I could use those damn ps/2 ports.

They usually still have at least a single combined mouse and keyboard ps/2 port. (Even if internally it's hooked straight up to an onboard USB converter)

A USB 3 card with 4 ports and maybe a USB C on it is under 20 bucks these days as long as you've got a slot available.

There's exactly half a generation of boards that had hardware that's still decent today but no onboard USB3 or integrated USB3 addon controller.

Plus USB3 actually works well with USB3 hubs. When if you plug your mouse and keyboard into a USB2 hub with something pushing real data you end up with input issues.

There are millions of old Microsoft optical mice. They're okay. They stopped making mice with PS/2 controllers like 15 years ago so you won't find anything much better.
