Description Fabian Affolter 2007-08-28 04:16:07 EDT
The SI (International System of Units) says that the abbreviation of Megabyte
can be:

SI prefix    binary prefix
MB           MiB

At the moment we are using both in the translations. I would strongly suggest
that we use MB, GB, and TB in the future because most users don't care about the
difference between 10^3 byte and 2^10 byte and are not familiar with KiB, MiB,
or TiB.

I completely agree with you: MB, GB and TB.
