ISO is more recognizable than IEC[edit]

I propose that all references in the article and the tables to IEC binary prefixes should be modified to refer to ISO binary prefixes or ISO/IEC binary prefixes. ISO is simply more recognizable than IEC. Z80Spectrum (talk) 18:49, 28 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
