    I remember back in the days of Windows 3.1 (yes, pre-WFW, pre-Win95, pre-Winn't) one of the students in my school's CS department was a Microsoft co-op. Because we were a Macintosh university, he as generally regarded as a "turncoat" by a lot of the technophiles. He did gain a very northwestern sensibility on economics in the software industry.

    Back then, he said that the printer system under Windows was a piece of utter crap. It was a holdover from the Win2.x days(!) and hadn't been touched in years.

    If Microsoft is claiming that no one wants to write printer drivers, either (1) they're speaking from their own experience, or (2) projecting their past experiences onto the rest of the world. :-)
