There is some support for brother multi-function ink jet printers in Mint 9 (copy, scan, fax & print) but not all, or even the majority. Brother provides Linux drivers for these printers on their site so I can get it 90% working with some terminal work so its not a major inconvenience for me but it would be great to have it work out of the box. I'm sure you guys have higher priority items on your list but I thought I would mention this just in case it might make it in to a future release .... or is this more of an Ubuntu item (Called Upstream?)?
Either way I am sticking with Mint. Its a great product and the Mint team does an outstanding job, THANK YOU!
My Brother model is mfc-490cw BTW I just started using Linux (dual boot with Vista) about 3 months ago. Tried several distros but none came close to Mint 9 IMO.
