What, getting specific old PiXMA drivers going? Forget it: even Canon
barely support existing printers on Windows and OS X. Their internals
are weird and proprietary.

I was pleasantly surprised over the holidays to be able to join two home
networks of relatives, and have their wireless printers be
auto-discovered and "just work" with Linux. Epson and HP deserve some
respect for this.
