Can anyone give me their experiences of desktop printing

I haven't tried for a while but it was a pain to setup and maintain the
last time I looked at it.
If you are using this for "real-work" and you are getting good results
please let me know what you are using (software and hardware ideally).
The environment I would like to put this into is a family house, very small
setup with 2 PCs and 2 printers. Currently both are Windows PCs but
one is experiencing all of the classic issues with a multi-year Windows
installation and since they are used exclusively for E-Mail and word
processing I am interested in migrating one PC over to FreeBSD.
.. If the solution was a Linux distro (box package, or otherwise) I would
also be interested.

My situation sounds somewhat similar to yours; wifey has a Winbox
in the house, and I print through it to an HP 6100 Multifunction
machine using apsfilter via SMB/samba. IIRC, apsfilter thinks the
machine is an "HP920" and uses the HP-provided 'hpijs' driver and
I've had trouble with later versions of Abiword and this setup;
possibly also some issues with Acrobat Reader, as well. I've not
taken time to work on this for a while, as I usually print from
web apps only --- printing is great from Mozilla et al.
