Tonight Denise and I went out and bought a printer. Well, it was a printer, scanner, and copier all in one. Guess what? Yep… It is Linux compatible. I am more than pleased with Hewlett Packard’s stance on Linux with printers and to a bit smaller degree with their hardware in general.
When I emailed them earlier about a specific printer, they were gracious enough to tell me the specific product I was looking at was not compatible with Linux, but then went so far as to tell me about a comparable product that was… get this… the email was signed by a real person too!!!
What Denise and I ended up settling on was the HP PSC 1210. I have already scanned, copied and printed with it, and oooooooh baby is it nice. I tossed the old HP 660cse in the garbage dump because it was too old and decrepit to give away.
So… I say this…. because….. I like Linux, and I like HP. So there.
