Re: linux friendly home laser color printer

I once bought a Samsung ML-1710 (monochrome laser) because it advertised Linux support right on the box. Dunno if that reflects their current policies or not.

You have to be careful with this. I got bit by a Lexmark that listed Linux support on the box, but would only work with older kernels in a 32 bit environment only. Tech support didn't want to help at all, but after I shared my experience on their Facebook page, they ended up exchanging it for a nicer model that did have current Linux support, so it worked out for me in the end.
