    Printers are the most finicky snickety things at the best of times with "working" drivers. Dealing with swathes of 0x3e3 errors from time to time needing a full reload of print drivers on the print servers from time to time.

    It's nuts, it should really be simple...

    I like to be naive from time to time

    MS should just adopt CUPS and be done with it.

    My printer has 3 ways how you can connect it to the laptop, none is working perfectly, even with latest updates. Microsoft just helped to make a decision to buy a new one...and use Linux on one of the computers, just to be able to print stuff without suffering.

    two days later, linux wrecks printing for a few days, returns to Windows. Yawn. "Wahh, linux!"

    Just remove the darn update and you can print again.
