Why is a Speyside Malt used in a post discussing Islay Malts with allegedly 100ppm of lead?

You will find Glen Moray distillery nestling on the banks of the river Lossie in the Western quarter of the ancient city, and royal burgh of Elgin. Elgin itself is an historic city, but not the least of its claims to fame is the fact that it is the capital of Speyside – a beautiful region in the north of Scotland synonymous throughout the world with superlative malt whisk

I'm young and only been into electronics for six years and so have only used lead free. I can't see what the fuss is about you just have to have skill!....

Your young is obvious from your post, moving to lead free has been very problematic for the electronics industry, it is nothing to do with skill, but to do with melting point of solders, reflow temperatures, tin whiskers etc. I still struggle to get some assemblies made correctly, having to have all my BGA compoents reballed with tin/lead solder balls. Also ask yourself why high reliability designs have not moved to lead free. So I suggest before you make a comment you do some research into what you are speeking about.
Or to put it more succinctly, you are talking shi** as they say up north

The learning curve is shorter for Pb-free. The good joints look almost as bad as the bad ones

Tsiros, it aint the fault of SMPS's if people laid them out properly and designed them properly they are not as bad as people make out, the fiasco is caused by the same people who banned lead solder, and the same people who wiped out California's PCB industry. Tree huggers who jump on a political point scoring band waggon that often has no bearing on real world requirements or conditions.
I have also seen big problems with linear supplies as well as SMPS's.
