Yes, it's all getting rather confusing really... it's funny how an
annoying problem (unsophisticated unix printing architecture) can
trigger four or more independent solutions. Now linux users have to
choose between CUPS, Omni, PPR, Lprng and gnulpr. Not to mention the
(slightly higher-level) gimp-print, gnome-print and so on.
Still, it's all good stuff...
