> An interesting side note: HP (and thus sometimes Brother, since some Brother printers have a feature called "HP emulation") network printers have a feature known as JetDirect. I'm not sure about the whole potential of this protocol, but essentially you can netcat a Postscript file directly to TCP port 9100 on the printer. Which is neat in a number of ways.

Yes, yes, yes. They're all at the " hplip " package. One of the first
packages I often install @ work. Try that at a recent distro tough.

When HP had to restructure to survive, good things happened. Indeed the
most compelling printing solution for Linux @ work. Hardware wise, I
would say "so so". Not the fanciest tech but whole solution, and I mean
software features, yes, go for HP specially in Linux world.
