Good day to All.

Maybe you haven't chosen the best. The sentence that "all seem to be from Universities" looks a bit forced, especially when followed by the remark that they "have little motivation for improvement". In industry, products are usually improved during years.

Take a look at Connexor, Xerox or Langos ( our site is www.langos.ro ). We even encourage our customers to report systematic errors, to spare us some data gathering work.
