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."

Hopefully this will result in a redisign of the CUPS website as well as http://localhost:631/
CUPS is nice software, but honestly.... both sites look like poo (literaly).
Apple has so many great designers. There has to be someone within Apple who creates a nicer website for CUPS.
