hi, my opinion about cups. it sucks. i run kde myself these days but i dont
use cups. it uses an old ghostscript rippoff for their raster2ps stuff without
any possibilities to have it used in ghostview (either ggv or kghostview) this
makes it necessary to install ghostscript aswell. also the driver support for
the old ghostscript version sucks. but this shouldnt hold you to freely
implement CUPS support for gnome. in worst case you still need a valid
ghostscript besides cups and i dont see the point of having cups and
ghostscript laying around on my system.

you are at least right with one of your statements "it SEEMS to become the
standard' hopefully it wont. the majority of people still use a lpr or lprng
together with apsfilter.
