The love affair is over
sad mac

Let me get this straight. I can't print from MacOS 10.4 to a commonplace HP non-postscript printer (in this case a LaserJet 1022) that's connected to and shared from a Windows XP box without downloading, compiling and installing a bunch of open source software from a third party.

I was under the impression that Apple computers were renowned for their ease of use.

Well, Apple have tried to make the other way around easy (if you use Bonjour, say, you can connect anything that works with the Mac on the Mac end and easily find/connect to it using a Postscript driver from any Windows machine, even if it's not a Postscript printer, I believe. I certainly had that working with an HP 1100A.) But from Mac to Windows isn't as nice, from what I've found. I'm thinking you may be being a bit harsh on the Mac, though; it sounds like it's Windows that's getting in the way... If the 1022 had a network adapter, would it work from both machines?
