I have an opportunity to pick up a Brother MFC-8890DW printer at a
fantastic price. There is a Linux driver for CUPS available at:

This is obviously not a high end unit; however, I feel I could
probably get fair results out of it. It is not a "color" printer so
it will only be used for normal b/w documents. I plan to hook it up to
my router using a wireless setup on my home network.

I am not worried about my Windows machines since it will obviously work;
however, I want to know it this printer works as designed with FreeBSD.
I doubt that the FAX function would be used at all via FreeBSD, if it
is used at all. I have a dedicated FAX. However, the copy and scan
functions would be important.
