I'm not following you. LED's weren't even considered 20 years ago, let alone forced down our throats.
Yes, they were certainly around. I was designing with them 20 years ago, albeit in specialized applications. 10 to 15 years ago I remember all the same arguments about how cost ineffective they were and that no one was ever going to use them except a few tree-huggers with money to waste.

ALL my corporate clients use them

Really? That surprises me since very few businesses have anything but a few token LED's. But all your clients use only LED's?

You would be wrong in your assumption. They are widely used these days because of lifecycle costs, energy-efficiency and coloration. Every single one of my clients uses them for the vast majority of their sales floor lighting.
