Encyclopaedic / Writing Style[edit]

This doesn't really read like an encyclopaedia article, and in some parts reads almost like an advert for the software. For example, the drivers may provide more features, but that does not necessarily make them "better" - what about users who, through their limited knowledge, don't know what all the other features are for, and they mess something up? Maybe for them, the "better" driver is the default one. My point is, it needs some clean-up and less fanboyism to make it more valuable to readers. Spelling, punctuation, etc. could probably use some sprucing too (and yes, I know I've probably made some mistakes in my typing, and I know fanboyism isn't a real word). --174.92.101.2 (talk) 03:46, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

No longer supports windows environment[edit]

As nearly as I can tell, Gutenprint no longer supports the windows environment. As such, a clarification is needed. I haven't changed the article itself because I'm not dead certain about this, but I've been unable to find anything that works in current environments and the documentation no longer refers to the windows environment.
