I think their system is easier to grasp, which is maybe why* virtually everyone uses it now.

And I also hate how they've ruined how we say numbers
1,000,000,000 should NOT be a billion, it should be one thousand million (or a milliard). A billion = a bi million, which implies two millions. Therefore a billion should be 1,000,000,000,000 which today is a trillion!
I hate how they ruined the number system, and I hate even more that we have changed our system just to fit in with theirs. Aargh!
