Linux "To be clear about this article's intent, it's not to bash Microsoft, or Windows. Because to be fair, despite using Linux 95% of the time while I'm on the PC, I can find more faults with it than Windows. So, this article's goal is to highlight some of the major pluses of Linux, and also showcase where Windows could improve in the future, should Microsoft take heed of the suggestions."

Using Samba+CUPS, with the processing done on the server, turned it from a multi-day job for multiple people, into a 2 day job for 1 person.

There is also something called "Print Services". I just installed it and it will automaticly install the drivers on the client. This would have been a 4 hour job i guess. And if you are too stupid to do this you could install the printer on the server and share it from there. This way you have thesame setup as samba+cups.

The mention of samba+cups already shows you are not into windows, please don't comment if you don't know what you are talking about.
