[News] GNU/Linux Just Works with Printers, Of Course

It Just Works: a happy tale of Linux and printers

| Should I be this happy? Yeah. I think I should. Genuine progress, even in 
| small ways, is worth a smile.  


Logitech Vid - SightSpeed Rebranded and Dumbed Down

,----[ Quote ]
| There is one other case that could change my mind. Shortly before they were 
| taken over, SightSpeed announced a Linux version, which was supposed to be

| software.
| Although I had loads of trouble with HP’s software for the other printers,

| problem was experienced with the procedure. The registration software
| wouldn’t work with Firefox, my primary Browser on all of my systems. It
| insisted that I use Internet Explorer 7. Since that software isn’t available
| on all of the other systems in use here, it has not been loaded on any of the
| systems.
