Re: The 39 Steps
I use CentOS/RHEL at work, and my main machine at home uses Mint.
I have 2 printers at home - a wireless Epson multi-function, and a Samsung laser. The laser was a doddle, but the multi function was a pain to get the scanner working. It also took me a while to get a duplex enabled driver for the Epson. However, the issue was finding the driver rather than the installer for printing. And the scanner required a bit of playing round until I realised the scanning software was the issue rather than the driver.
I tend to avoid Windows at work unless I have to, but recently bought a Windows laptop, purely as I was missing some of my Windows games that just won't work for me under wine or Proton (in Steam).
