Google As most of you will know, a common problem for any new operating system is hardware support. Drivers don't grow on trees, and usually need to be written by manufacturers, which costs time and money. Luckily for Chrome OS, it uses the Linux kernel which makes the hardware support question far less problematic. Still, when it comes to printers, the situation is different, and here, Google is trying to achieve something which should've been done ages ago.

Doesn't cups pretty much take care of the whole printer issue already? Or is google going to reinvent the wheel again and say "we can do better!"

Sort of tired of seeing google thinking they can always do better. No. Sorry google. You can't always do better. Really.
