The new 9.10 did fix my printer problems I was having with usb and
parallel together on the same system, but I now have a problem sharing
the printers with my wife's Vista laptop. I'm not totally sure that is
the new Ubuntu but I didn't have any problem sharing the usb printer
that did work before 9.10.

- I have been using Ubuntu since 7.0 using 9.04 on my main computer and also on a Toshia 5 year old laptop. waiting till 9.10 shakes out most of the bugs before installing. Ubuntu does everything I need to do.
