I was impressed by GE. The article I read said that in 2014, LEDs were 5% of the market. In 2015 they were 15%, and GE sees where that's going and is going to stop producing CFLs in 2016. Why devote production and distribution to chasing a dying market when you could be pushing the growing market?

I love my CFLs and use their few seconds of warm up time to think "60 watts for 13, and I can't remember when I had to change it" and giggle. Their longevity actually hurts their reputation, at least color-wise. Since they last so long, differences in development and packaging make it hard to standardize on a single bulb type in the house. Mixing and matching slightly different colors is annoying.

I've still got a couple left, but I'm looking forward to moving to LEDs.
