Not if you live where the waste heat helps keep your home comfortable.  In that case, the more efficient the light bulb, the more you have to pay for heating.  Not a complete trade-off, but the number of times I have warmed my hands over an incandescent bulb while doing  driveway mechanics in January makes me appreciative of lower tech solutions to everyday problems.  One man’s waste is another man’s lifesaver.

Randomness and Free Will are both 
useful constructs for explaining 
behavior, but neither are provable 
and both only exist in the 
philosophies of their believers. 
I believe nothing exists outside 
the will of GOD, and look forward 
to the final test of that position.
