If we are putting in plugs for other printers, then Sumsung has brilliant 
support for Linux, once you get past first level support.  They have a chap 
(Linux Support Department!), whose permission I have to give out his name and 
contact details, who will stick with it to help until the printer/all-in-on 
works in Linux, if the supplied Linux drivers don't work.  (I've always 
managed to get printers going - it was an all-in-one I needed his help for.)
