Is not a metric time not used because of angles? In navagation,
degrees/minutes/seconds in time can be used to calculate location in
long/lat easier than some decimal system. No one who sails uses radians
as a measure time. It would be bloody hard to figure out where you are.
(well, this may change with more people using the NavStar sats.)
