Re: yes, it's very nice but...
I'm late to this but, I'm -glad- they use leadfree solder in most gear these days.
The reason why I'm glad is because when it comes to reworking/repairing equipment, one of the big problems is trying to remove the parts (with heat) without disturbing everything else. Now on the -removal- phase everything is going to melt at the same temperature, which is a pain, you still do it but it's a bit like walking on thin ice, however when you install new parts you typically will use leaded solder/balls for the task, as such you can get your repair done at a lower temperature/faster without disturbing the rest of the board as much a second time.
Big thing I'd like to see them stop using is the dreaded underfill. Corner-bonding I can handle, but underfill is such a royal PITA.
