it should make senseâ€¦ ofcâ€¦ i was just trying to explain why it is like it isâ€¦

if you think of a bus like say a pcie bus, then for everytime you add a lane to the bus, the bandwidth goes up by a factor of twoâ€¦ thus TiB makes good sense when calculating transfer speedâ€¦ atleast on a fundamental levelâ€¦

while storageâ€¦ if you add a plater then you simply use addition, which is easiest for us humans to do in decimal.

what people what to use for showing the speeds can be completely arbitrary from these fundamentalsâ€¦ if it was up to meâ€¦ we should use a 3rd definition that looks nothing like the othersâ€¦ just to avoid the confusion cause by the switch from TB which is TiB becoming TiB

and SI becoming TBâ€¦

sure when itâ€™s all over it will make more senseâ€¦ but really in some cases it will also be quite the messâ€¦ because try rounding numbers that are a factor of two into being nice looking decimal numbersâ€¦

how do you write 4096 or 8192â€¦ ofc the simple answer is just to cut it down and call it 4GBâ€¦ but it really isnâ€™tâ€¦ no matter which way one changes it, then binary doesnâ€™t convert well into decimal numbersâ€¦ just like duodecimal numbers doesnâ€™t translate easily into decimalâ€¦

how would you write or count a clock in decimal numbersâ€¦ sure you can write it with decimal numbersâ€¦ but you end up doing all kinds of weird stuffâ€¦

like each day and night cycle is 1 = 12 and 2x is 24 hours , then each hour is split into 5 parts of 12 minutes, giving a total of 60minutes in an hourâ€¦

ofc the setup kinda drifted a bit over timeâ€¦ but you get the ideaâ€¦ and it simply cannot be easily translated into decimalâ€¦ no matter how much one wants to do soâ€¦

the fundamental behavior of the numbers and even numbers will not align into something sensibleâ€¦ so tho i think it is kinda arbitrary what is usedâ€¦ then i donâ€™t see how itâ€™s even possible to change it like people seem to want to doâ€¦ is simply not how computers workâ€¦
