PCI may have been annihilated by PCI express, but it isn't quite dead yet.  Personally I want at least one slot on my new mobo as I have a huge collection of cards which I might need to use, and do not want to have to rebuy a new equivalent, provided one exists.

 

I can agree that blatant anachronisms such as PS/2 ports need to go, but PCI and Onboard audio still have a place.

 

Legacy interfaces & backwards compatability still need to keep kicking around.

 

If we're to get rid of anything, make it Micro ATX as an average of 3 expansion slots is not enough.
