I will one day kill my Brothers Printer MFC-5440CN that work in Win 7 64 bits with full software, altough it use Windows Vista 64 drivers and software without problems and that is nice to know, PS if the software from the manufacturer work without any need of intervention of the manufacturer, drivers and software toghether there is no need to remake them again for the sake to make then logo approved in Win 7.
Most if not all software that are made for Vista will work in Win 7 without problems at all that included most of the drives also.
Full list are LJ 1000, 1010, 1012, 3600, 3500, 3550, 1500, 9850 and 8550 as per the following url ... HP's Windows 7 Laserjet Support page ...
and they clearly state not happening in Windows 7 for these 9 models, yet there are probably upward of a hundred or more models that are supported.
My LJ 3600n is about a year old and has a manufacture date on it of June 2008 (basically new) yet that same support page shows a truly ancient LJ IIp is still supported! Amazing!
HP also did this to me with a scanner when Vista came out, but scanner was some 5 to 6 years old and I didn't argue.
As I stated in a posting in HP's forum ... manufacture date of June 2008, not like I bought some POS laying in the warehouse for a few years and I got what I paid for ... it was brand new from Staples.
I also stated in HP's forum ... I DON'T WANT TO HEAR BS SUPPORT RHETORIC FROM YOU GUYS ... FIX THIS ... and warned them I would shout it from the hills to anyone that would listen that this is not right.
Well HP ... I hope you are listening because the shouting starts here and NOW!
