SkyOS SkyOS has gotten printing support using CUPS. "With the Printer Configuration it is now very easy to add and manage your printers, be it locally connected (USB) or network (Windows, Linux, Samba, IPP) printers. The entire printing system is implemented as a service (like most other SkyOS Subsystems), which can easily be enabled/disabled on demand. With roughly 1000 supported printers the next SkyOS build will enable you to print your favorite documents in various formats."

And yet it's less featurefull than even some of the lesser used alternative OSes, e.g. FreeBSD (not saying it's bad, just saying not as many people use it as linux).

Well, I believe FreeBSD has more users than SkyOS ;)

I don't consider FreeBSD as an alternative OS, in the meaning "obscure".

The *BSD's are great OS'es with full functionality.
