Diamond might have more potential than silicon, but silicon isn't going anywhere anytime soon. We have far too much infrastructure based on silicon
manufacturing, and we know more about the science and engineering of silicon for electronics than any other material, such as germanium or gallium
I wouldn't be surprised if diamond could be made such that it would be used in high end electronics, where the buyer is willing to pay top dollar for
better performance (like the military) but I don't think it will be economically viable for consumer electronics for a long time.
