13.1. Mac Meets Printer

One of the biggest complaints about the original Mac OS X was that at the outset, not many printer companies had rewritten their printer drivers—the software that controls various printer models—for Mac OS X.

Fortunately, the situation has improved: Today's Mac OS X comes preinstalled with hundreds of printer drivers. All the major printer companies—Epson, HP, Canon, and so on—are on the case, working to develop drivers for current and future printer models. Even so, millions of older printers are incompatible with Mac OS X. The moral: Investigate the situation before you buy the printer (or before you upgrade to Mac OS X).
