I live in the metric world and I think its much easier than imperial. 
When I went to school here in Australia, I got caught in the changeover 
from imperial to metric and didnt that confuse things when I was just a 
child of about 6 ot 7 years old. I can now work with both, but do prefer 
metric as its all base 10 and much easier.
