Long term, yes, today, no.

Depends on what you think "today" is :)  I'm old enough to see
way many things change -- when i started hacking, computers
with no ICs in them were still quite useful.

Please, sir, do not remind me of even earlier things...such as the
machines, admittedly shoved in a corner somewhere, that were still running
legacy applications without _transistors_.

I still have a soft spot in my heart for vacuum tubes.  Diagnosis is so
much easier when you can look for the tube that isn't glowing.
