Here‘s a new printer from HP:

Last June 22, HP announced its new all-in-one printer, the Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web. Aside from cramming a fax machine, copier, scanner, and a printer into one device, run of the mill technology by today’s standards, this new printer can actually print straight from the Web using on-device applications fashioned specifically for this purpose.


As the headline to that story makes clear, that’s a Linux-based printer: indeed, it’s pretty much unthinkable that these innovative approaches could use anything else. Linux’s small footprint, speed, customisability and low cost make it ideal – uniquely so. Where would we be without it?
