Does it come with a power cable? Most electronics, to save the environment, have started shipping without a charger. Most modern printers do not include the USB cable anymore; they called it: Sold separately. And next year, cars will ship without wheels because "you could use your old car tires to save the environment". (and it has nothing to do with wheel shortages, promise!)ok. just ordered the cheapest brother printer. DCP-J1200W. no touchscreen. I like it already. yes linux drivers. thanks everyone.
Not sure about the features you would lose (because yes, if you have a usb entry for selecting and printing photo's a network printer will change the way you do this), but scanning can be done using the sane daemon (and a bit of configuration). So CUPS + SANE is what you want. And it's not all that hard either...Yeah I wondered about that, though I don't think the owner of said Windows computer wants to lose any features, and there's the scanning question too.
