Why do we still use Roman numerals? Movies are made in MMXVIII. I've never seen a bottle of wine with the vintage in Roman numerals, at least I can't recall one.
Lapierre makes a 'reserve' Morgon in good vintages; that bottling has the vintage on the label in Roman numerals only. I still have a couple bottles of the MMIX.
It's rare for sure. I'm not even certain whether most North American schools still teach Roman numerals to kids.
Heck, Seaquam, with the advent of computers, a lot of them don't even teach cursive writing anymore.
