Is it time to end the old f/stops?

Anyone getting into photography can't figure out where the numbers come from. Actually, I think Olympus tried to fix that by using numbers from 1 to 6 in their PenF film cameras. Can't we come up with something new that would make more sense?

But it probably won't come from the US. We keep on using the archaic inches, feet, mile, oz., gallon, etc. Only two other countries besides us do't use the metric system, they are Burma ( Myanmar for the young whippersnappers! ) and Liberia. We're in good company!

Let me know what your thoughts are.......
