In these times where some look at Windows as the necessary OS that "just work", I feel obliged to notice that my hp p1102 usb printer is not recognised by Win10. I lost half an hour trying to make it print a test page while I "plug and played" it on pop OS...

@steppenwolf Each OS is good at different things. None of them are the end all be all. I wish I could do some of the things in Linux as easily as I can do them in Windows. And honestly, half of that is simply because companies make software for only Windows. If FOSS devs could crush it with competitive software, it would be an easier sell.

@steppenwolf Printers just decide to be a pain in the butt sometimes regardless of the OS.
