"Film or Digital?"

I currently use a F100 and was considering moving up to the F5...Then this D-100 comes along at about the same price sending me into a tailspin of digital confusion. Having been a film guy for quite a while and currently owning a 3 year old Sony digital p&s, (slow, not much versatility) making the jump to the digital SLR is a big leap. Is there a down side to jumping over the digital fence and doing away with buying and developing film forever? I have quite a few Nikon and Tokina lenses that will work on the D-100 but I am leery of making the change. The could start a fight between the dedicated film guys and the digital converts but it's worth it to find out what the real scoop is. Is 35mm film dead? I would appreciate any imput.
