Back on the printer front however, I could not be happier. HP supports its HPLIP project with tremendous work as far as I am concerned. I have yet to have a problem with all-in-compatibility when it comes to HP.
As for HP’s dance around Linux as something to be run on PCs, I really don’t care. While I think it would be great to see HP moving beyond Splashtop and actually provide a mainstream distro on their computers. But considering what a half-hearted job Dell has done in my honestly opinion, I am not really all that motivated to whine much about it. Let HP continue as they are. I don’t buy their PCs anyway.
