"...How much of the print quality comes from the printer and how much comes from software is an interesting question. With this particular printer, as Bruce Perens said in an interview earlier this year, much of the color handling happens in hardware rather than by the driver. This should mean prints from both Windows and Linux would be the same. It's obvious some enhancement is done to the image the printer is asked to print before it gets there, in much the same way that hitting the "loudness" button on a boombox boosts the bass and makes music sound richer. Perhaps color enhancement is a default settings on Windows but not Linux.
