Ovaj članak govori o podršci za Linuks koja se tiho provukla kroz najnoviju Leksmarkovu liniju štampača i All in one uređaja. Bez obzira što ovo nije reklamirano, nova serija je dobila podršku za Ubuntu, Suse i Fedoru, Na štampaču je iscrtana i Linuks maskota (Tux), a uputstvo eksplicitno pominje Linuks kao jedan od podržanih operativnih sistema. Iako nisu dostupni na CD-u, Linuks jeste zvanično podržan i drajvere je moguće preuzeti sa Leksmarkovog sajta. Međutim paketi nisu skroz ažurni, ali u članku se pominje i kako to zaobići i kako instalirati (inače 32-bitne drajvere) na 64-bitne Linukse, kao i o budućnosti podrške za Linuks. Pročitajte celu priču i Linuks test All-in-One uređaja Lexmark Pro905 Platinum na donjem linku.

Citat:Most of the time at Phoronix we focus on looking at the Linux graphics performance of the software drivers and hardware, since traditionally that has been one of the most troubling areas of Linux hardware support. Tides though have turned as AMD continues to back their own open-source strategy with providing documentation and pushing out code that enables open-source hardware support from 3D acceleration to power management, while Intel continues to back their fully open-source model too. Another area of hardware support that has caused much grief for users has been with printer support. Printers are not nearly as complex as a modern-day graphics processor, but the different vendors have not been quick to offer up any Linux support -- and binary-only drivers frequently back the ones that do. There is one printer manufacturer though that as of last year has begun supporting Linux from top to bottom with their entire line-up of printers. Not only are they providing CUPS drivers, but also they are even printing Tux in the corner of every box they ship right besides the Windows and Apple logos. Do you know who we are talking about? Probably not, but it's Lexmark. After months of wrangling within the company, Lexmark has stepped up to become a Linux and open-source friendly company. We are seeing how far this Linux support extends as we try out the Lexmark Pro905 Platinum multi-function printer.
