Fedora Core 6 is due for release (release candidate is available)

Core 6 has massive improvements to the printing system!

I think it would be much more representative of State of the Art in 
printing if you could do your testing on Core 6.

All other distros you mentioned have already upgraded the print system.

[Printing-summit] Would like a spot on the agenda to present operability 

Currently, I'm testing user-level printing on linux and I'd like to
report on what I've found. The methods I'm using are simple, but the
data is different than I'd expected.

I have snapshots of five different distros from 9/2006-ish (Debian Etch,
Ubuntu 6.06.1, Fedora Core 5, SUSE Linux Desktop 10, and Mandriva 2006)
and five printers (HP 5610, Epson Stylus CX3810, Samsung ML2250, HP
LJ1022, and Xerox 6120N.)

In short, I'm plugging in the printers and recording how much work I
have to do to get a printout using current distributions and printers
that were popular on web sales sites.

Any comments would also be appreciated; I'm still gathering data.
