The amount of people that it would bother are few, and old so not a major concern. if anything the light bulb is an achievement in refining a common technology. Making a wire turn white hot is not that hard, making it not burn out almost immediately is.

I've made my own short-lived filament, a lead from a mechanical pencil, connected to 24VAC, in open air. It glows very brightly for a few seconds before it fails.

I don't think Edison would be upset at the use of LEDs; rather, he would praise the forward movement of technology and laugh at the glorification of old, inefficient technology. But that's just my opinion.

PS: Yup I've seen the faux tube amps with LEDs to fool those who want to be fooled. Even politicians are incapable of understanding the difference between correlation and causation.

Even politicians?  :o
