This is not true and you should not trust it. For an example, NewEgg
current sells the Lexmark x6650:
It is also still listed as a current printer on Lexmark's page:
But, on openprinting.com, it is listed as a paperweight (it doesn't work at
all, even a little in Linux):
If you want to be sure, www.openprinting.org is a good place to start, but
as I said in an earlier email, older HPs that support PostScript printing
are always a safe bet.
