comment What is the difference between a kibibyte, a kilobit, and a kilobyte?
@Synetech, i think you're wrong. When disk/storage manufacturers use GB, they're almost always correct. Any discrepancy tends to be on the part of the operating system, which uses GB (10^9) when it actually means GiB (2^30). So, a drive sold as 500GB is actually 500GB, but when you plug it in, and windows says it's "465 GB", WINDOWS IS WRONG.

Great thanks, i thought that was the case. So the "problem" is that ls uses GiB (which it refers to as "G") with the -h option and the disk space is measured in GB. Cheers.

@and31415 i don't think so, as my question relates to the ls command.

comment Modern.ie Windows keep shutting down in VirtualBox
I agree that if people are just using them to test software then it seems pointless and annoying to make them keep shutting down. It just makes windows/IE testing even more of a b*llache.
