It is not about faith but about standardization. A kilobyte is 1000 bytes. If you're saying to the apple pear, then you like for your personal freedom, but really, the term is not. The unit is in the standard IEC 60027-2 (when you can www.iec-normen.de buy) down.
It helps so synonymous not that in the German language use "standard" "virus" and "the prospectus" are widespread. It is true "Standard", "the virus" and "the prospectus". Perhaps the change over time. But there is no reason to expect that because commonly used in a few years 2 2 = 5 is. Because the would have far-reaching consequences.
No dealer will have an interest in the wrong value 1024 for a kilobyte to use. That is, in most cases adversely for him, because a 80 GB disk is only 76 GiB (estimated) has. Will instead of the wrong denomination GiB GB used to be the buyer advantage, the dealer regresspflichtig.
See for example: http://www.ilexikon.net/k/kilobyte.htm and http://www.galileocomputing.de/glossar/gp/anzeige-8948/FirstLetter-K

If a laptop will cost 1024 euros, you can do so with 1 kilo euro pay ... :-)
