But what is HPLIP? I've read the release notes etc. on SourceForge, but
what does HPLIP replace? -- my psc 1310 driver. Or, is it a new set of
drivers that is equivalent to the Windows drivers. Does it give me
access to other tools like scanning (+ sane). As a user did you notice
any significant changes to the operation of CUPS or your printer?
