The Mac OSX printing problem: is this the one whereby disabling colour management isn't possible without the Chan or Adobe workaround? Or is there something else too? 2. "There are other problems with Windows": what are they in the context of making prints or processing photos in general? 3. What do you mean by a "CUPS" problem - not familiar with the term. 4. What is the nature of the "ideological choice"? Why should a system developer let "ideology" get in the way or usability? I'm curious about this one. 5. You say they want "color management to behave in a certain way". What is that way, and how does it differ from the way you would normally want colour management to behave? Again curious about this. 6. "System is fragile and prone to these printing problems". Fragile in what ways - i.e. what does it take to knock it - and by "these printing problems", what problems exactly are you referring to - the "no colour management issue", or are there others? I'd like to know so I can avoid getting myself into trouble. 7. You predict "they" will continue to happen - why? Is it the opt-out method of colour management, if so what about it that causes other trouble of what kind?There's something ironic about the fact that Apple/Mac was once considered the "only" system for proper colour management, and now it appears people may be looking at Windows as a less troublesome option for managing a print workflow.
