    Do you trust CUPS?

    For your printer? Is there anything else you use. Would you trust an apple project?

    Re: Do you trust CUPS?

    Well, I never print at home and the printer I have doesn't work with Linux, so I don't use it. However, I do trust CUPS. It's fully open source; who cares what company is behind it?
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    Yeah. Plus realize that Apple did not write CUPS, they merely purchased it.

    If it's under a Free Software license, I couldn't care less about the company of origin.
