Here's additional place where FreeBSD has lack of support: USB based printers.

Here's a citation from the FreeBSD handbook (page no. 251):

USB interfaces, named for the Universal Serial Bus, can run at even faster speeds than parallel or RS-232 serial interfaces. Cables are simple and cheap. USB is superior to RS-232 Serial and to Parallel for printing, but it is not as well supported under UNIX systems. A way to avoid this problem is to purchase a printer that has both a USB interface and a Parallel interface, as many printers do.

That appears to be an old version of the Handbook. The current printing chapter covers all four common connection types:
