No but like IBM and the PC they wish they the 250 would go away and like
IBM lost the PC market time will tell what will replace the 250 as the RP
system of choice. Clearly the research being done to support the SLS and
FDM processes will fuel an interesting battle.
Classic history repeating itself in other markets...........
