Misleading article

As someone that used to work at CERN, the article seems very bad written to me.

If memory serves me well, SL was only intended to be used at CERN and Fermilab, among other research institutes that collaborated with them. As a means to have an uniform distribution across all institutes.

It was never intended to be used in the outside world.
