I'm fairly certain 'lefties' are the ones who advocate free speech. I'm not 100% on American politics, but here at least it's the 'lefties' supporting civil liberties.

It's the 'think of the children!' people you want to be attacking here. The ones that want to destroy freedoms for the sake of not offending anybody. I think you'll find they're right-wing. ;)

Ubuntu Will Switch To Base-10 File Size Units In Future Release 984 984

CyberDragon777 writes "Ubuntu's future 10.10 operating system is going to make a small, but contentious change to how file sizes are represented. Like most other operating systems using binary prefixes, Ubuntu currently represents 1 kB (kilobyte) as 1024 bytes (base-2). But starting with 10.10, a switch to SI prefixes (base-10) will denote 1 kB as 1000 bytes, 1 MB as 1000 kB, 1 GB as 1000 MB, and so on."

It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
