Print to a Shared Windows Printer
Authored by: Mark Farr on Jan 01, '08 10:32:16PM

Why cant my wife's MAC print to a printer shared by my Windows XP PC right out of the (MAC)box... SOP? I think the problem here is failure to communicate. Apple is too caught up in their "DOES IT LOOK COOL" mind-set to make sure "it" works well with other products. I hate to say it but the simplest solution to this(MAC's) problem is to buy another printer for your MAC ... its seems APPLE did not learn how to "SHARE" in kindergarden. Every time I touch the"MAC" $3,000+ its a nightmare. My advice sell it(MAC) and buy a PC ... for the money you will get 4 times the machine and it will print to shared printers ... dang how about that. Some times ugly is beautiful. Before all you APPLE gurus blow a circuit, solve the problem ... anyone ... APPLE you out there?
