Default Rotation Direction?

Simple question here. What is the default rotation direction (clockwise, counterclockwise) in grasshopper? I would consider it to have been clockwise before today, but am finding it is counterclockwise (multiple computers/OS). Was it at one point clockwise and changed? Considering this post/cluster from 2014 it appears that the negative rotation has switched.

This reminds me of the best quote from one of my favorite books The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Parmenides posed this very question in the sixth century before Christ. He saw the world divided into pairs of opposites:
light/darkness, fineness/coarseness, warmth/cold, being/non-being. One half of the opposition he called positive (light, fineness, warmth, being), the other negative. We might find this division into positive and negative poles childishly simple except for one difficulty: which one is positive, counter-clockwise, or clockwise?
Parmenides responded: counter-clockwise is positive, clockwise is negative. Was he correct or not?
That is the question. The only certainty is: the counter-clockwise/clockwise opposition is the most mysterious, most ambiguous of all.

Look at a circle or arc. As far as I know, it has always been this way. (counter-clockwise)

Default rotation in GH is CCW. That specific component had/has the option to select CW.
