Ehm, how many people in this world calculate using the decimal system? And how 
many prefer using 'kilo == 1024' over that?

Why do you think a kilometer is 1000 meters? Much easier calculating, for one, 
and consistent with liters, grammes, and all other SI-units.

Ok, agreed, you're an American and there people are still doing the math for 
miles, feet and what more, but most of the world prefers decimal ;-)
