Re: Try Linux. - Or DON'T! (My love/hate Linux rant.)
My wife insists on windows, so we had to buy a new printer to work with her laptop. I'm still going to keep the Samsung going until I run out of Toner though...
Why not simply buy a raspberry pi, hook up the printer, there, network printer ... then if you tell us on stackexchange.com what printer model it is (which language it speaks), we should be able to point you at one of the generic printer drivers in Windows to speak to it ;-).
Fun project, espectially if the result is a 90's printer that support wifi-print ;-)
