       TI seems to be being real aggressive in this area, It would be interesting to
       see what Symbolics will do....
   It's easy to be aggressive about pricing when you don't have to be
   concerned with making a profit on what you sell.

Aggressive university pricing can lead to significant profits "down the
road".  SUN has had aggressive university pricing for a longer period
than TI, and they seem to be concerned about making a profit.  Anyway,
the recent drastic reductions to universities for Symbolics layered
software products suggests that Symbolics now recognizes this, too.
