The funny thing about the AC vs. DC "war" is that with today's technology, DC would work just as well as AC, if not better. Back in the olden days, DC could only have its voltage stepped up and down using rotary converters and the like, thus giving AC a huge advantage with regard to transmission losses. Today, the conversion can be done with semiconductors.
