In general, modern printers do not care about what they
print. If you have the driver for the software, it prints.
If you use Windows 95-2000, it prints because universal
or Microsoft compatible drivers are present. The printer
itself simply waits until it receives three things:
1. The on switch to activate it.
2. The driver to tell it what to do.
3. The software to tell it what format to use.
Beyond that, it doesn't even care if it is on a Mac
or PC as long as the terminal connections are right
(parallel, scsi, or usb).
