I'm bothered by the likelihood that such institutions are using equipment
that was either donated or sold at a discount by the manufacturer. I
thought it was a common practice for these institutions to receive
discounts under the condition that they do not enter the competitive market
-- but I could be wrong.
How does the rest of the RP-ML feel about a research institute/educational
facility directly competing against standard service bureaus. It would
to be a problem for many firms that do service bureau work as their main
source of income.
