Mac OS X Some more details concerning Apple's upcoming Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard release are trickling onto the web. First of all, as expected, Snow Leopard will include more thorough support for ZFS, but it's reserved for the server releases. In addition to that, printer drivers on Snow Leopard will be delivered on demand, shaving off a few gigabytes of space off a default Mac OS X installation. The drivers will be obtained via Software Update if necessary.

Because they load their drivers with lots of crap that no one needs.

Around 6 months ago, I installed an HP printer on my brother's laptop and was quite impressed by the amount of services that get installed.

Lots of stupid process to start whatever dialog when the user clicks on the printer control buttons.
