I use both systems. Old one is good for when you have to up or downscale in fractions, like I have to build a replica of something to 1/4 of the size. Metric is better for most other calculations.

How on earth is it easier to downsize inches any more than it's easier to downsize centimetres?

I can divide 10" just as easily as I can divide 10 cm. Shockingly, the mathematics is the same.

All those fractions of inches are there because people are lazy. 1/2" is EXACTLY the same as 0.5"... there's nothing 'easier' about it. The units are irrelevant.
