Why don't programmers write open source hardware..

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 27, 2003 02:35 PM
Why can't I use anything other than an overpriced hp multi-function fax in crippled mode on a linux network?

Why can't I see "linux-compatible" on advertisements for printers, scanners, multi-functions, print servers, and more hardware? TigerDirect.com is guilty of this. So is Quill office products. And Office Depot. And all the others.

No ego stroking writing hardware drivers?
