I know some of you think this question seems to not fit appropriately, but it would be nice if you could leave it open so that even if the question doesn't seem good enough, the answers provided below give concise counter-arguments to my proposal. Also, I did try searching for my question, but it seems to have been asked in varying styles which wouldn't link to each other (search engines aren't that smart yet)

Thanks! Your answer was great too. I'm glad both you and matan129 took the time to share your knowledge with detailed answers. It definitely answers some of the thoughts I have, although I will look into quantum computing, analog computing and ternary computing. Interesting to see the possibilities that exist.

Thanks! Your answer was great. I found 2 other links from your link and I now see some of the other views mentioned. I'd just like to point you here: stackoverflow.com/questions/764439/… and the post by "rbud". His last paragraph mentions "Apparently they are much less costly to build and they use far less energy to operate." which seems significant to me, although counter-arguments for precision were also mentioned.
