That's what I have done, sort of. I'm filtering through ghostscript to a 
remote queue on a windows box. I just tried it out most of the non-KDE apps I 
have that send output to the printer, and in most cases that works fine. 
Usually the only non KDE app I print from is AbiWord, and for some reason 
that crashes when I try to print to anything but a postscript or pdf file. 
But the problem seems to be confined to that one program. Oper printed 
without a hitch.

Is death legally binding?
