Re: Do you advise me to adopt NetBSD?

I have not yet tested my USB wi-fi adapter, would use urtwn.
For printers and scanners, I have HP LaserJet M1212nf MFP, haven't been able
to make it work with either NetBSD or FreeBSD: screwy type of USB interface.
Trying to set up using Ethernet, NetBSD failed or refused to find the printer.
FreeBSD found the printer but couldn't install the binary plug-in.
But this is a recalcitrant printer, maybe NetBSD and FreeBSD might do better
with other, non-HP brands.
I still haven't got to properly test the printer under Linux.
By the way, USB 3.0 on the motherboard works in FreeBSD 9.0 and Linux.
