Man, this Epson/Vista suff is getting worse and worse. Somebody should
sue to make them cough up the resources to finish full Vista support
for all printers/scanners that were on the market in the last 3 years.
I have an Epson Stylus Photo 960. Expensive printer, only been off the
market now for 1 year, but they won't write a fully functional driver
for it, even though Epson Europe HAS written and posted a fully
functional Vista driver for the Epson Stylus Photo 950, which is the
EXACT SAME PRINTER. Only the 950 drivers won't work with the 960
because of file name and printer identification string differences. A
competent enginner could repackage the 950 driver for the 960 in a
couple of hours, but Epson refuses to listen. I've tried.
Unless they change their attutude soon, they've lost a customer for
