Apple Apple has bought the CUPS code base, and has hired it's lead developer. "CUPS was written by Michael R Sweet, an owner of Easy Software Products. In February of 2007 Apple Inc. hired Michael and acquired ownership the CUPS source code. While Michael is primarily working on non-CUPS projects, he will continue to develop and support CUPS, which is still being released under the existing GPL2/LGPL2 licensing terms."

I don't mind it being in Apple's hands as long as it stays in GPL. I might have some issues if they rename it iCups. Oops I hope I don't get sued for putting the letter I before a product name without Apple's permission. ;-)

It's ok, I've had iCups before, they're easy enough to get rid of. Just drink some water, or breathe into a paper bag.
