Apple has filed two patent applications that describe an approach as well as file formats and APIs to eliminate the printer driver as a requirement for users to access a printer and print documents.

That would indeed be a boon to these systems, but those crappy (HP) drivers would end up being replaced by equally crappy services that Apple enjoys installing.

10 different services for an iPOD install? Cmon.....

Aren't the latest Gutenprint drivers pretty much universal anyways? Seems like kind of a waste of time.
