So does IEEE 1541-2002 conflict with IEEE 100-2000 or does it supersede it? — Omegatron 01:33, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

I can't answer Omegatron's question directly, but can offer the following relevant text (from IEEE Std 260.1-2004)
  • "When a document is more than five years old and has not been reaffirmed, it is reasonable to conclude that its contents, although still of some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art."

IEEE 260.1-2004 also includes the following definitions
  • 1 B (byte) = "a string of bits, usually eight bits long, operated on as a unit"
  • 1 o (octet) = "a string of eight bits, operated on as a unit"
  • 1 kB = 1000 B
  • 1 MB = 1000 kB
  • 1 GB = 1000 MB
  • 1 KiB = 1024 B
  • 1 MiB = 1024 KiB
  • 1 GiB = 1024 MiB
