kB = 1000 bytes, kiB = 1024 bytes
kb = 1000 bits. ooh! you forgot that one, you 8-bit/byte zeelots?
Why isn't 1 kb 1024-bits? Ha!
I welcome the change. kB should be 1000. And it should be up to the user to select if he/she want to see sizes in kB or kiB.
Mmmm.... a bunch of HP DL360s with two of those in each. Yummmmm....
