Almost certain to spark debate, Norman Pace, in this article from Microbiology Today, argues that prokaryote as a word is outdated and should be eliminated from the microbiologist's vocabulary. He doubts that you even know what the term means and says , "the notion of prokaryote was scientifically illogical from the beginning because the definition, an “organism without a nucleus”, is a negative definition." What do you think? Does this make sense? Is it a logical conclusion to think microbiologists should rid themselves of the term as a whole?
