I'm interested in knowing what everyone is using for print management

but I'd like to see what else is out there. I don't really have any
requirements other than preferably available separate from any
computer management system. Mostly just interested in what is out
there and personal opinions of the product.

I'd be especially interested in any OSS options. I've come across a
few CUPS/lpr based systems (http://print.ncsu.edu/ and
http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1027802.1027849) but there doesn't appear
to be any code release associated with them.

Got the following response:


The person you're referring to is most likely Adam Lewenburg. He has since moved on, and I am now the service manager for LibPrint.

We had looked into open sourcing the code, as well as several other methods of distributing the system to non-UIUC organizations. Unfortunately, the bureaucratic overhead involved turned out to be more massive than we could have imagined, and it turns out that we don't have the staff or resources to make it possible.

Sorry for the bad news. If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
