Lol... almost half a gig download for a printer driver... Oh the ludicrousiditiness of it all. That has to be a typo. The 405.1 MB part, not ludicrousiditiness.

Apple... please... focus some of that creative energy into a Mac Mini update!!!

I'll stick with my Canon printer and 10.4.11 for now.

Good luck. I think all of that creative energy will be flowing towards the iPhone for the next billion years.

Only 52.3 MiB and I have a LaserJet 2550L and LaserJet 3015.

Maybe the heavier updates are for inkjets?

Don't ask me. I'm sharing two printers through a new AEBS. I was thinking it's more of a Intel vs. PPC thing.

The open source driver I have does OK: Gutenprint v5.1.3 and I think 5.2.x for Mac OSX is out. Is there any advantage to the new Apple drivers? For older printers it seems unlikely that there's much improvement. No?
