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!

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.

The amount of hand editing you have to do in Linux is far greater than Windows, in my experience.

However if you are installing a Printer as a sysadmin, editing install scripts shouldn't be a big deal.
