#2862 closed Defect (wontfix)

Should format file sized with power-1,000 on Snow Leopard

Description

On Snow Leopard, Apple has shifted to displaying file sizes in multiples of 1,000 instead of the traditional 1,024. In order to maintain consistency with the other file sizes users are likely to see, it is a good idea to format numbers in the same manner.

Attached is a diff of NSStringAdditions.m that changes the behavior on Snow Leopard (and later) while using the old system on Leopard.

I appreciate the patch, but Apple isn't even consistent with what they use across the system. At least for now I would rather just keep it as-is.

I would suggest a toggle preference for this, but it would be pointless clutter to the UI. From that angle, I agree with your point.

Can you name any inconsistencies in Snow Leopard w/r/t this? It seems relatively consistent to me, but I'll admit I haven't gone looking for exceptions.
