comment Why do printers require drivers?
Good reading tip; they do seem to have had a lot of problems keeping up with printer technology changes. The small mention that they had a debate around the development of WordPerfect 4.0 on whether documents formatted for a laser printer in the office then taken home should be reformatted permanently shows how backward the thought process used to be: your printer dictated how your document would end up looking, and even the market-leading software had to jump through hoops to try to retain document portability.
