Really? I love the use of the F word, it makes you sound so much more intelligent. "I" am not being stubborn, I am having a discussion. KiB, MiB, GiB are made by marketing people who think consumers are stupid, they server no usefull purpose, there was never a reason to differentiate between KB and KiB in the first place.

The prefixes are different already, there is no centibyte for millibyte, it's not really a scientific measurement to begin with.

So there is no problem with using them in the original context (2^10....)

And no logical reason whatsoever for the terms (KiB,MiB,GiB) to have been created in the first place
