Re: Landfill

"I buy printers based on upfront cost + price of third party ink + open source driver (so the printer does not become landfill when the manufacturer stops releasing binary drivers)"

Alternative to open source driver requirement: supports Apple AirPrint (which is supported under Ubuntu, so printers become actually plug-and-play - at that point, printing under Linux is easier than under Windows!)
