Also, when sockets are used in large quantities, manufacturing yield takes
a dump. We have all mashed a pin or two in our lifetimes, trying to get
something inserted (anyone that hasn't is a liar!). Now multiply that by
several orders of magnitude on the assembly floor.

ENgineers should try there best to avoid sockets. Period.
