Can anyone tell me if this printer will run on Windows 7? The specs do not include this operating system...They mention Vista, XP, etc. I'm looking to purchase a wide format printer and for the price...this one looks good but I'd hate to get "stuck"

I have one connected to an XP system and print to it from my Win7 Pro 64 laptop all the time. I downloaded the Win7 drivers from the Canon web site. Works great for me from all the computers in my home. (XP, Vista, Win7)

I am very happy with this printer. So far, the only thing I have found that I cannot do is print to it from a Red Hat Linux system.<G> However, since this is not a printer normally used in that environment it is NOT a problem. I tried it more as a "wonder if it will do this" than a real intent to use it that way.

I do not know of a continuous inking system for this printer. I have used them on previous Canon printers - S9000, ip8500 - and been moderately pleased with the results. I found ink was cheaper, but not as colorfast as the Canon inks, and I tried several highly recommended inks. I also had trouble with print heads clogging. So this time I opted not to look for continuous ink and bite the bullet and pay for Canon cartridges. So far, almost a thousand pages later, no print head problems.
