One thing that seems to me most unlikely to survive is the free copy of Mathematica to higher ed purchases. Buying another brand computer plus NeXTstep software will not get you Mathematica for free. If NeXTstep costs $500-$1000, and Mathematica $900-$1500, it would have to be a pretty cheap and powerful machine to match the deal one could get through NeXT. Of course there will continue to be discounts for teaching labs from Wolfram, but for faculty or other purchases my comment still holds. One more thing: Canon makes copiers, Cannon makes towels. Let's get it straight. Richard Mercer Wright State University
