    Hey. Is there any way, i.e program that will allow the counting of space in SL to go back to base 2? As you probably know SL change from 1024=1gb to 1000mb=1gb. Any way to change it back? And why did Apple do this?

    No.

    Because hard drive manufacturers use base-10 (1KB = 1000 bytes, etc.) and customers ALWAYS complain about missing space.

    Apple's KB article on the subject (Knowledge Base, not kilobyte ;) ): http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2419
