I must disagree with you that "Xerox people can go a week without checking it [email]" The Tektronix/Xerox merger established a great alliance for Xerox to confront HP. The result of this action was a 30%+ marketshare in that arena with the Tektronix products being focused (very well, I might add) on the Graphics Arts industry. I believe that you'll find that any potential culture clash between the two entities will be short-lived and inconsequential. Tektronix allows us a foothold and additional product/research capability to move more forcefully into the "point of need" printer market than previously. And Xerox people really do check email, voicemail and vpn enabled accounts on a daily basis. Hope this helps the discussion a bit.
