      Saying "Gibibyte" out loud is a humiliation ritual.
      It's caving in to the iTards and other tech illiterates who can't deal with "giga" having a slightly different definition when talking about computers.

      I don't care if they use "GiB" as a unit but I will never say it out loud.

        Metric prefixes meaning powers of ten first started in the 1790s, with six prefixes being defined, including kilo as 1,000. Mega was set as the prefix for 1 million in 1873, and giga & tera being set as 1 billion and 1 trillion in 1960. Using them to mean something else was the result of lazy computer programers and part manufacturers deciding to ignore these preexisting standards.

        Seriously, it makes no sense to have a set of prefixes that mean one thing in one specific industry, while the same prefixes mean something else in every other use.

        To go further than that, not everything in a computer is binary (clock speed, for example), and you end up having the same prefix being used to mean different things in the same part. For example, if you have a stick of RAM that runs at 3 billion hertz, and has 16 x 2^30 bytes of memory, it often ends up being called 3 ghz 16 GB RAM, which really does not make much sense.

          the pre-existing standards aren't just 'here are some prefixes, here are some units, go nuts', they explicitly define what you can and cannot do and strongly discourage non-standard uses. a kilobyte being 1000 bytes is just as wrong as using powers of two prefixes for bytes because neither are standard, just like how milliarcseconds discouraged because it's non-standard.
          but ok, let's accept this autistic argument for a kilobyte being 1000 bytes, solely to benefit storage manufacturers and the telecomms industry, what do we get out of it exactly? a fricking moronic conversion factor that's necessary when dealing with data in ram vs data transfer or data storage. the whole fricking point of the metric system was to have a coherent system of units where no such conversion factor is necessary. using powers of two prefixes for bytes, a non-physical and non-metric unit, makes way more sense and is more in line with the metric system than the absolutely moronic compromise we have now

            > explicitly disobeying SI prefixes is actually more in line with the metric system
            americans are fricking moronic, scientific language is meant to be static and unambiguous. whether its actually worth trying to educate normies about kibi vs kilo or whatever is debatable, but the overaching scientific community shouldn't be making exceptions for morons who need rhymes to convert between units. the CS/EE pioneers should've made up new units instead of creating this mess.

            SI prefixes were established and widely used in a consistent manner before some CS/EE gays decided to use them incorrectly to describe certain computer parts. Not all computer parts mind you, for some reason they did SI prefixes correctly to describe things like processor clock speed, but for some moronic reason they thought it was okay for mega in CPU megahertz to mean something different than the mega in RAM capacity, which is just dumb.

            How many pints are in a megapint?

            - How many homosexuals are in a megahomosexual or a gigahomosexual

      It's the other way around. Check your HDD capacity on your HDD sticker and compare it to how the HDD is presented in windows.
      Windows is the only OS which shows the number of the capacity in TiB but uses the unit "TB" as a suffix.
      Microsoft are literally the only ones completely fricking it up in every possible way.

            There is only one actual american category that ironically gets called "indians". Everyone else are just imported outsiders that don't belong there. Either get rid of all of those (the preferred method) or loosen the criteria for the word (the easier method). The second option should be pretty familiar seeing how they already changed what the word "white" means to include amerimutts.

    Gibibyte= base 2
    Gigabyte= base 10
    Storage manufacturers sell in base 10, computers use base 2. Naturally, one gibibyte is lower than a gigabyte and operating systems will often incorrectly label a gibibyte as a gigabyte, leading to someone thinking their 512GB SSD is only 490 "Gigabytes". Is this really hard to understand to anyone who isn't my mom.

    I was glad when Mac OS switched to the SI definition because it really used to piss me off when hard drive capacities didn't match up to what they were being advertised as. If I buy a 1TB hard drive, I should expect to see 1TB of capacity, not 931GB.

        It's not lying. SI prefixes have well established definitions. It was a lie to ever use them the other way in the first place.

    Bruh I remember I had an exam at an engineering school about this. The question was "How many bytes is 1GB"
    I raise my hand and ask
    "Do you mean gigabytes or gibibytes?"
    >teacher looks at me like I'm moronic
    >anon what are you talking about
    "1000 is giga, 1024 is gibi."

    I really don't understand the problem. It's just two different units of measurement? It's like saying using the metric system in America where the metric system is more applicable is a "humiliation ritual".

      instead of making a new unit, like GmB (Giga metric Byte), they decided to change the meaning of the existing unit in order to sell you less storage for the same amount of money

            SSD prices have exploded again after ~~*they*~~ reduced supply. I bought a 2TB drive when they were still cheap (HDD prices basically) and that was a great feeling. The standard should be at least 10TB, and you should be able to buy it for cheap, and it should be fast. Speed is the only thing that has been improving over the years.

        It literally says on every good HDD how much bytes it has, they don't make a secret out of it or anything, you wouldn't magically get more for less money when they change the units, they would just make it even more expensive then

          Trying to redefine a unit of measure seems like an excuse to try not get sued for false advertising.

          Just like it would not be okay to say: Oh, but 1 KG is actually 900 grams, what you are refering to is 1 KiG
