    9 out of 10 for the operating system itself.
    Its the hardware support that could be the killer

    They aren't coming out with updated software for my HP printer till January. The software disk I have for it won't even install on windows 7 now- I already tried compatible mode and the like, it didn't work. I can still use it over the network though. So, I guess it isn't all that bad ...

    It works over the network. I don't have it hooked up to my computer. It is hooked up to my router :)
