CUPS: A “Magical Stone”?

Using a PostScript driver, enabled with a CUPS-PPD, seems to be a very elegant way to overcome all these shortcomings. There are, depending on the version of Windows OS you use, up to three different PostScript drivers now available: Adobe, Microsoft, and CUPS PostScript drivers. None of them is known to cause major stability problems on WTS (even if used with many different PPDs). The clients will be able to (again) choose paper trays, duplex printing, and other settings. However, there is a certain price for this too: a CUPS server acting as a PostScript RIP for its clients requires more CPU and RAM than when just acting as a “raw spooling” device. Plus, this setup is not yet widely tested, although the first feedbacks look very promising.
