In the computer industry, there is a tendency for competitors to copy each other, especially regarding the user interface and user interaction methods. There is a general standardization of how to do things. Not so between Nikon and Canon. Cripes, the first thing I did was try to take the lens cap off and found that the on/off direction is opposite! How does that happen? I grew up with “Righty Tighty” and “Lefty Loosey”.

I have to agree that I think the Nikon way is backwards. Turning clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to loosen is a generally accepted standard. It also makes a lot more sense to line up the dot in the 12:00 position when mounting the lens, and the Canon red dot is much easier to see in the dark.

UK drives on the left, the rest of EU drives on the right. there is such a thing as backward compatability, which includes Nikon driving on the left
You can't change that after 50 years.
