Hey Presto!

Or, "Solaris printing finally makes it into the 21st century".

Check out Norm's screencast of the first working bits of the automatic printer detection and config system that we're working on for OpenSolaris. Only works for local USB printers right now, but loads more functionality to come over the next few months. Kudos to the printing team-- Norm, Wendy (who doesn't have a blog, AFAIK), Ghee and Halton\*-- for finally nailing one of the most-neglected parts of the Solaris user experience.

\*Okay, so I've been helping a bit too...
