i bought the first Brother printer we've ever had this week. it's a laser printer and it's set up to be wireless. i used the included CD-Rom to install the drivers on my wife's Macbook Pro. it needed Rosetta. fine, i had added it to her SL install. however, i went to do it to my computer but i don't have Rosetta and i am determined not to use it. so i went to print and found the printer and clicked on it. it just worked. i don't think i told it to use CUPS either but perhaps that becomes the default absent the actual drivers???
but today i noticed that Apple released new drivers for Canon and Brother printers. i just installed that as they noted it helps with SL. i had never noticed that drivers were coming from Apple as i figured the individual companies would release their own drivers when they were available. hmmmm.
