Oh don't get me started on this subject !
I just read a full two page article yesterday on this subject, in my
Electronic mag (Elektor) ! :-O

This is silly... especialy more since there are TWO conventions: an
international one and a French one. So if I use the French one I will
be correct, but will nonetheless confuse the rest of the world even more
than they already are.

I won't use Ki/Mi/Ti just because it looks and sounds horrible to my
ears and eyes, and because I never found that people were *that*
confused by the old system. It was clear to technical people for which
it mattered, and confusing to non-technical people but the latter kind
don't really need to know anyway. With this new system, it will be even
less clear to non-technical people, but more of a problem, it will
start to become unclear to even the techies too ! :-/

I say go back to the old units and prefixes, the new system's solution
is worse than the problem it tried to solve, IMHO of course ;-)
