I suspect that's the case only because there's no real other choices for
printing. We sat down a couple of weeks ago during an internal Solaris
desktop usability and performance summit, and printing was definitely
identified as one of the current failings of the desktop. Norm may be
able to fill in more about their discussions [I believe he's on the
list]. I'm pretty sure Sun is right behind on you this one.
