So they want to go back to roman numerals? :fp:

bunchamorons, Roman numerals are not compatible with modern maths. Arab/Indian numerals and the positional system to give powers of 10 are so convenient and practical that going back on that is preternaturally stupid, and I say that as a guy who is permananently shut off any serious mathematics.
Yeah, I'm not a math guy, but even I realize how important 0 is.

I have a book called "The Book of Nothing" by John Barrow, which is all about the history, philosophy and mathematics associated with the concept of zero. Quite fascinating - I must read it again...
