Like Andy, that's the way I was taught, and I don't see any reason to change now. I don't think it's really noticeable anyway.

The only reason it was brought to my attention was because of a research paper I turned in that had two spaces after the periods. Otherwise I probably could have gone the rest of my life without knowing ;)

When you hit the space twice, it gives you a period and a single space.

I was taught to double space too. When I hit the space bar twice, I get a double space, not a space and a period. This goes for my iThings, laptop, and PC.

Double space is the only rule I retained from typing class. Now I have to break that habit?

Now that we have keyboards and not typewriters, yes you do. Sorry about that. It made me a bit mental too til I got the hang of it.
