Please test out Gutenprint on Haiku with your supported printer and report back here, or file a bug report if you encounter problems. Anyone with a colour cartridge?"

Strongly disagree. I can and do develop things in a text editor, yes, but limiting myself to this sole way of developing software would be just stupid.

As an example, for Windows GUI application development, I think Delphi is (or was ? Stopped using it at version 7) truly excellent. The whole process of creating forms, putting controls of them and adjusting their properties, managing events, writing code, debugging, changing the application's icon, and all those everyday tasks, is made incredibly smooth thanks to a nice set of well-chosen and well-implemented features. Even looking for help is great thanks to the integrated VCL and Win32 reference manuals. The sole issues I ever had with Delphi were not related to what it brings on the table, but rather to what it does not do and leaves to a Win32 API which is very poorly integrated in a Pascal environment.
