Ubuntu Reverts File Size Reading Changes

The introduction of a new file size unit reading policy in Ubuntu 10.04 that caused many users confusion has now been reverted and postponed until Ubuntu 10.10.

The debut of the new policy was, as reported in our original article on it, creating an inconsistent and conflicting desktop experience for users with many applications still reporting file sizes in the old ‘style’.

Lucid will now provide a uniform experience for users using the ‘old’ method of unit reading.
