no, but it is as significant as black&white -> color TV, or vinyl 
records -> CD. you can argue all you want that LPs are better tahn 
CD's, and audiophiles still do, but unless you're an audiophile, 
nobody cares. and on the internet, you can talk all you want about 
plain text, but the reality is, it's rapidly turning into the LP of 
the e-mail world.
