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.
