The last time I tried to use CUPS, I found it to be so user friendly
that I couldn't get it to do anything useful. Very pretty, less
functional; and the documentation was entirely inadequate.
On the other hand, while lprng was anything but user-friendly, it was
simple and well-documented. Much more important to have something that
works before you go making it user-friendly!
