I never said "apsfilter" was the end-all in Unix printing and I agree
that the linuxprinting.org site is useful. I've used that site myself
when I was looking to buy an inkjet printer and I wanted one that would
work under Unix.
I do find "apsfilter" to be quite handy since I only need to create a
single print queue on my print server now. Before that I used to have
to create multiple queues so I would have "raw" printers for the
Windows clients and then another queue with a filter that converted
PostScript to Laserjet 4 output for my PCL-based HP printer for Unix
