It seems like only yesterday that Xerox was in trouble and was losing money. I knew that they would bounce back and with Ms. Burns as the new CEO, I expect to see dramatic improvement. My only concern for Xerox is that they have not promoted the solid ink technology to the public in the strong fashion that they should, and they are too hesitant to fix the kinks is the solid ink printers before their competitors release a version of their own.
