Linux has gotten much better at handling printers through the years, but you are right that printing problems still occur, and they are a major source of anxiety, for new users. We have covered Linux printing in the past, but the landscape has certainly changed since our Print cover theme back in November 2004. We'll try to line up a nice big printing article sometime in the next few issues. In the meantime, everyone should visit http://www.LinuxPrinting.org (which now links to the Linux Foundation's OpenPrinting web page) for information on printing in Linux. There, you'll find configuration and driver information, as well as a CUPS tutorial, user forums with answers to printing questions, and software.
Thanks for the great magazine and keep on giving us even better.
