Hello list,

I've just installed the latest Xubuntu Feisty Fawn and I'm wondering why 
there is a cupsd and an hplipd running. Does this not contradict 
Xubuntu's philosphy of being as lean as possible?

Do you expect more than 50 % of Xubuntu users to have an HP device 
attached to their computer?
