Design principles suggest that there will not be a perfect design that
fits all these cases, even if we were given years to work on this ;-)
I'm not sure university/corporate market is even focused enough. I would
say we should pick one of the two (I would vote for university since so
many companies are already gunning for corporate, and partly because I
understand it better), and even with University I'd want to pick a
particular sort of department to design for (Math / CS / History /
General Purpose Cluster Machines).
