Buying a new Inkjet printer that works with free software

I went to buy a new printer today, because the trusty old HP Photosmart P1000 that we’ve had for about 6 years just ran out of ink, and the paper feeding mechanism is broken so you have to tend to it when printing more than one page or it gets jammed, and the ink is about £40 for a new set.

The nearest shop to my house to buy a printer is now the local Tescos supermarket, which had a range of mainly multifunction printer-scanner-fax boxes. I noted what they had on the shelves, returned home to check openprinting’s excellent free software driver guide:

HP seems to be really supporting free software - all new HP printers are perfectly supported!
