Gold doesn't tarnish so you can get a good solder joint after it's been
sitting around for a while.
There are enough hassles with lead that some/many PCBs now come with gold
over the exposed copper rather than solder.
I think the trick is to make the gold very very thin so it just disappears
into the solder.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
