In consumer-oriented equipment, yes, unfortunately. Fortunately, most
workstation boards still have them (the latest I have is my desktop box
at work, a HP xw4300, Pentium D), and of course server boards do. The
thing that upsets me the most, given that I do a lot of work with
network hardware, is the fact that laptops don't have them anymore :(
