    "Well now!!! Given this development, the big question, in my mind, is …. will Xerox in the U.S. get back into the wide-format equipment business?"

    I read that and laughed..but then seriously thought...

    Considering my own experience and from my perspective...Xerox NEVER hit the right stride in the engineering market...Oce secured the Production side of the market and the "end-user" market with reliable; almost bomb proof machines that were worth their sticker price. And in the last decade KIP definitively moved into a position of producing a cost conscious; user friendly unit. So now as Xerox.......I announce that I'm out of the WF market for 2012? 2013? R & D this technology abroad.....They'll have position themselves for a mid 2013-2014 launch.

    The answer to your YES. I'll put dinner at Bern's on it.

    I hope that this finds you well.
