"The software loaded easily on the Mac and I was able to get the Linux machines on speaking terms with the printer quickly. With a bit of trepidation, I approached the Windows XP machine. I looked at it, it looked at me. Neither of us was looking forward to an ordeal loading the HP software.

"Although I had loads of trouble with HP's software for the other printers, Loading the Officejet Pro 8500 software took only about 20 minutes. Only one problem was experienced with the procedure. The registration software wouldn't work with Firefox, my primary Browser on all of my systems. It insisted that I use Internet Explorer 7. Since that software isn't available on all of the other systems in use here, it has not been loaded on any of the systems."
