Brother's printers are vendor supported. They've got a network-based
(like it has an ethernet port [or a wirelesscard] in it already)
all-in-one scanner/copier/laser printer, and *all* of that works in linux.

It's more expensiver, but I want one really badly. I have an HL-2070n
and it works wonderfully in linux.
