Bits and Pieces ...
In reply to InTheMist, Apr 24, 2012

A word takes its meaning from its use, not its origin. A forum no longer has the primary meaning of a Roman market place. For the vast majority of English speakers a byte is eight bits and an octet is a group of musicians.

Or perhaps not...for most people a byte is a vague measure of how much they can save on their computer disks. I'm not sure how many know (or would care)how many bits there are in a byte and for them a megabyte is exactly one million bytes.

However, the term byte is not really relevant in image processing, so let's just stick to bits and we will understand each other.
