The <A HREF="">$49 HP 656 printer</a> you reference in the article is HP's token WinPrinter. You have to cough up an extra $30 or so for a <A HREF=""> model 845</a> to get Linux compatibility.

On the one hand, I love the idea of the Monster of Retail facing down the Monster of Software with 'naked' PCs. On the other hand, I don't know which one I'm more anxious about, given both of them trample their competition with glee and abandon. On the gripping hand, I suspect a lot of people are going to buy these as replacement boxes and just shift their existing copies of Windows over [yah, it's illegal, they should know better, yadayada, but you know it's happening].
