Why do peope use the Foot-Lambert?

As a means of measuring the light output of a display device it is an obsolete measurement. Far better to use the Candela per sq.m which is the SI unit and not some horrible mix of imperial and metric. For the record most edit suite monitors are run at a white point of 80 cd/m2 which is approximately 30fL.

Dude - I know what the individual words of the comment mean but I have no idea what the sentance is trying to say!
Oh, the conversion factor is 3.43!
