I second that; I would really like the new MB/GB/TB stuff to be in the new
If someone thinks this makes it impossible to communicate to someone else
about filesizes; please think again;
- - Filesizes reported in various applications are currently printed sometimes
in Kb and other times in Mb etc. People ignore them now since they don't make
sense. I doubt you can tell many people that 208111bytes is indeed 199Kb...
- - adding a couple of filesizes is almost impossible since nobody knows how to
do it correctly. (206000 bytes + 1Mb file; will they fit on one disk?)
Please take away the headace and make KDE really stand for ease of computing.
Its not about breaking old standard; its about fixing them so you can
actually start using them.
