Actually, I've found their technical people quite helpful (Ok, I was using
Solaris at the time, but I don't recall actually telling them that). There
is complete documentation of their parallel-port protocol (NPAP) available
at their FTP site, should you decide that just dumping your files out the
parallell port isn't good enough.
Their PS emulation is not really worse than anybody elses (I've seen far
worse postscript interpreters). In general, I find their Optra line to
be quite decent printers.
-- Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
