The prospects for the near term application of current x-ray lasers are examined. Four areas of application are discussed: grating production, photoionization laser physics, contact microscopy, and holography. Evolutionary rather than revolutionary progress is shown to be possible in grating production and contact microscopy. The photoionization experiment discussed is not possible without an x-ray laser. Dramatic progress is potentially possible in x-ray holography but numerous difficulties make this a long term problem requiring significantly improved x-ray lasers.
