Re: I got mine last Christmas @Colonel
I don't disagree with what you are saying, printing is important, and your view "Unless the.... is only a couple of clicks away and doesn't require any technical skills, printing is a big problem because the majority of people do have a problem setting up such complex systems." is certainly valid for many people. My only worry is that you may deter those with some limited technical skills to try the solution I went for. I am not clever enough to write the code and do geeky stuff myself, but I did give the "How to..." a go and followed the very clear step-by-step guide here:
and it worked straight out of the box :-) [the small script just downloads and installs everything automatically - takes ages but I cooked the supper while it was doing it].
There is a choice of 'flavours' of Linux (Ubuntu) and most of the software I mentioned is installed automatically. Installing additional packages from the on-line 'App store' is easier than most Windows installs I have done in the past, so give it a go! And a big 'thank you' to How-to Geek and those that made it possible!
