Why are printers and drivers so complicated? "I want a set of dots with this shade here, please" shouldn't need 200MB of software

Also protocols exist, but no printer made in the last 10 years seems to use them consistently

Never mind 3D printing, we need 2D printing fixed first

@cypnk good luck with that. as far as i can tell, it's been regressing at least since i was in my early teens, and i am about to turn 37.

@brennen @cypnk I am 52 and can add ten years to that.

Even today, I have colleagues breaking the concept of wysiwyg, so that what comes out of the printer looks right, whilst what the user sees looks like crap.
