It's not the same.  hpijs supports only 600 dpi while the win driver uses
1200 dpi.  The quality produced by hpijs is good, but the difference is
visible in photo quality printing.

I received a patch for hpijs which is supposed to add 1200 dpi photoret
mode, but with the patch, only a 23 mm high portion of the image was
printed (the quality looked OK, though ;)

I don't think this discussion belongs to tech-kern anymore..
