    Yeah, yeah, I have had trouble getting printers going in Winders as
    well, particularly Vista and Win7, so your point is?

    Don't know crap about computers, but installing a printer in Windows 7 is
    one of the easiest things to do, Have not had any problems installing
    anything with 7, have 4 computers in our household and all running 7 and no
    problems
    all tied into a wireless network and wireless printer. Set them up myself
    with only manual for reference, no problem
    and guess what I am 75.

    With Windows you need the printer's CD, the manual and have to go
    through the install. With Ubuntu, all you need to do is connect the
    printer; Ubuntu will ask you is you want to install the printer, click
    yes and follow the easy instructions which is about a total of three or
    four clicks. Scanners are installed automagically and are ready to use
    instantaneously.

    Best advice ever I had for my Pixma printer when it wouldn't run was to take
    the paper out and hold the printer upside down.

    Did so and a pistachio shell fell out. Worked ok after that!

    There you go lying again. With Windows 7, all you need to do in hook up
    your pirnter (most printers) and the driver installs instantly. You don't
    know very much about Windows 7 so you lie constantly. Stick with that
    crappy Ubuntu and continue to use the cryptic line commands to get most
    things done. Then GIMP along with that INFERIOR Open Sores program that is
    about 10 years behind the times.

    No wonder Ubuntu is on so few machines. It's pure crap.

    Most would go nuts using Ubuntu. Best advice is to stay far far away from
    that SHITTY Ubuntu.

    RUBBISH. Windows has NEVER had printer drivers as part of the OS. Maybe if
    you are using a dot-matrix printer it might work but certainly modern colour
    laser and all-in one deskjet type printers are NOT contained within Windows.
    What on earth made you spout that drivel?

    Installing my Lexmark C540N colour laser printer (networked) on Windows 7
    needed a manually-downloaded driver from Lexmark. Ubuntu (10.04 beta) did it
    for me automatically.
    So which is more shitty, Windows 7 or Ubuntu? (And I bet I know what the
    troll will say...

    I wouldn't recommend that you use Windows drivers for a printer. I would
    use the driver's provided by the printer manufacturer, either on the CD
    or their web site.

    Now comes more lies:

    We know how limited and immature you are. Why you have to prove it over
    and over again with every posts boggles the mind. I suppose you just
    don't know any better.

    Simple, he's a liar and jealous regarding how easy it is to install a
    printer with Linux.

    Just did a bare metal installation of Win 7 x64 Ultimate. It installed my HP
    1315xi.
    It's an All-in-One and all features worked immediately.

    How do you explain that?

    All the ones that I would have installed if I had had to use the CD.

    Just wondering why you said: "modern colour laser and all-in one
    deskjet type printers are NOT contained within Windows."
