Rant on:
I saw the other writer praising HP, especially for its printer compatibility.
Well, I'll tell you, I wasted my money on an HP 1020 Laser Printer, because
there is no way to get this Windows bitch to print anything from Linux.
At least not from my machine by me. As long as HP and others make
Win-printers, Win-scanners, Win-modems, and so on, I don't support anything
they make. I am sick to death of this s----! Unfortunately, I don't know
where to go--without HP printers and things like that, there is nowhere.
I guess you can see that I'm mad. I suppose that this should be OT, but
I would bet that nobody reads the OT list, so I'm venting here.
Rant off.
