Hi,

I noticed something which annoys me. All gnome aplication Use MiB instead of MB and KiB instead of kB as it should be.

I have gone over the config menus but this one escaped my attention. Can I get the real usage of these terms instead of these faulty ones back?

Hugo.

Right. It seems gnome uses IEC style. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix)

They are propably right. But it will take some time to learn to use it.
