I sympathise.

If it helps, you can just ignore hardware devices you won't be using,
and not disable them.

You may have a point, there; HP _is_ an apt example:  I forgot about the
way they eventually came around, concerning inkjet printers.  (For the
curious, see http://www.linuxprinting.org/suggested.html.)  On first
glance, and perhaps pessimistically, the www.mbsi.ca struck me as aimed
at an alternative to greater cooperation, not a prelude it -- but time
will tell.

Cheers,                              "Azathoth need not be present to win."
