Just curious...  Based on my own experiences, I've concluded 
that any type of multi-function printer/scanner/fax/copier 
product doesn't sit well with the BSDs (or QNX or *Linux 
for that matter).  

Has _anyone_ out there found an exception to this?  I'd be 
interested to know.  

Is it that the hardware _must_ be software driven (in 
addition to the drivers)?  Is it a problem with the 
structure of the drivers themselves?  What gives?  

I ask because when people ask me, all I can relate is what 
I've experienced, and I can't give them an explanation 
other than, "Multi-function products bite."
