     Goal of Epson supporting Linux platform
       Provide user printing opportunity
         Provide Printer driver as many Epson printer models as
         possible
         Work with most recent distribution
         Free to get Printer Driver

       Provide Linux users Epson Printing Technology
         2 types of printer drivers
           “Photo Image Print System”
           – Driver that uses imaging process best for the printer with the
             printer specific control commands.
           “Photo Image Print System Lite”
           – Open source driver that uses common control language among
             some photo printers

     Future Activities
       Keep developing printer driver for Linux platform
          Under development of new driver for 2007 printer models
       Planning to support Debian
       Planning to update for most recent distributions

       Issues
          Cannot provide Epson unique UI for setting
           – Difficult to work with spooler or application
          Too many distributions requires huge evaluation resources
          and time
