In exactly that scenario, ink nozzles can dry out, rendering your inkjet
printer inoperable. I only print every few weeks, and if I had to
replace ink for every print just because it dried out, I think I might
become angry. My laser printer works even after months of inactivity.
For the record, I completely agree with Mike. I also would not buy a
printer that did not speak Postscript. My PS-speaking LaserJet was
working as fast as I could edit /etc/printcap - no CUPS, no drivers, no
ghostscript, no filters.
