Yeah, well, maybe I can understand that. But I am simply not. I just
like supporting printers which ship with *nix drivers. It drives me mad
that companies who claim *nix friendly products make it so difficult to
run a flippin printer. I figure the more linux users who buy printers
which specifically include *nix drivers with the box deserve support.
To me, printing is perhaps the last frontier between Linux and
mainstream linux on the desktop adoption.
*That's* what I'm advertising: anything which furthers *nix
compatibility, and any company which produces products which are
friendly to our community.
(I would point out that my last email referred to the cost of printer
cartridges, and I used staples, not buy.com, as the supplier. I don't
work for, or get paid by, staples either!)
