I guess I should clarify my anti-MS statements.  I didn't mean to imply
that creating an IPP port doesn't work in Windows,, but compared to the
automatic discovery and configurations of printers on the Lan Cups can
do with both Linux and Mac, without ever installing *any* driver
software of any kind on the client (besides built in postscript
compatibility)... well Windows is just painfully primitive.
