No I don't think so.

I have and use both. My WIFI setup has always worked flawlessly since
day 1. Bluetooth also works very reliably.

WIFI produces better speeds and is easier connect to TCP/IP networks.

Bluetooth is slower, but talks to bluetooth devices (cell phone,
powerbook etc)

Both work great and are extremely reliable when setup and configured
