While the warm temperature is more soothing, the new white LEDs are almost superior in every way. More accurate colour, brighter with less light pollution, lower power use, less maintenance etc. I think people will get used to them in due time and the old yellow lights will be forgotten. Flying into Pearson at night is amazing, seeing all the residential streets in white and the main roads in the old yellow.Article about that very subject:
Honestly for small / narrow residential I like the yellow lights better ! A more warm feeling.
