I recently picked up an HP Photosmart P1000, mainly because it can print
directly from the flash card from my digital camera without going through
a computer. I had assumed that it would work on my Mac, but no such luck.
Now I'm stuck with yet another reason not to delete the Windows partition
from my laptop.  :-(  (I was hoping to nuke it once I had DVD support on

I think it's reasonable to assume that any HP printer is a WinPrinter
unless explicitly documented otherwise.
