Insuring there are appropriate printer drivers for a printer is part
of delivering the printer. Making sure the unique attributes of the
printer are available from the driver enable the printer manufacturer
to differentiate its product from another's. Writing drivers is a fact
of life for a printer manufacturer. We all know this and accept it.
Therefore we give our drivers away and as far as I know that will
not change in the near future.
