Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

Actually, when I forced to install HP drivers I find myself longing for the Linux hpijs.

For me, hpijs under Fedora simply work out of the box. (Under Fedora with 4 different models of HP printers).
HP drivers / Windows, are complex to install and full of junk I don't really need.
Trying to find the admin-only version drivers (that ones that doesn't include all the junk) is not always possible.

Pretty easy to fix, install the driver manually ... If it wants to install other stuff you can always edit the inf file.

You know, what I tell people to fix issues they have with Linux by editing grub/xorg.conf/etc I usually get shouted at...

The HP Windows driver is super bloated and far too fragile.
For once, Linux wins on ease of use - let us enjoy it.
