A guy buys windows crap and complains about support! Another one said recently "inexpensive" is "cheep" and "cheep" is shit. I was using a 15y/o HP 4L until last year, when it finally gave up and maintenance cost was higher than buying a new one. Buy a decent printer and be happy. I bought HP 402dn - will work the next 15y. It pays off over time, believe me.
