Re: Lexmark becomes Linux friendly

Hooray , I can buy a printer that is made in my state again!
Lexmark took over the IBM production buildings in Lexington Ky hence the name LexMark.

Nice, now HP has a real competitor. But I'm don't think anyone else has put the Penguin on the box.

Yeah, It will be nice to have choices when purchasing my next printer. I can't believe I haven't heard about this before now.

Thanks Wayne

Re: Lexmark becomes Linux friendly

I wonder if the new Lexmark scan feature will work well with Linux. HP is lousy with this. Actually, I have had major problems with HP in Windows and Linux. I know several businesses run Lexmark machines.

Re: Lexmark becomes Linux friendly

Even though overall this is a good thing, I'll stick with HP. I wasn't impressed with lexmark's quality.

I think lexmark finally realized they had to do something to cut into HP's business. Let's face it, even what HP makes off linux users is still millions of dollars. Why not take some time and effort to cater to the fastest growing OS in the world?
