The CUPS Printing System
Good overview of the CUPS printing system.
"CUPS is what its name says: a common UNIX printing system. It is aimed at providing a common printing
interface across a local network, masking differences among the printing systems on each computer. I am not
sure that such a system is needed in a pure Linux environment, where the standard Berkely LPD provides this
functionality, but CUPS does provide interactivity with SMB and Windows printers. CUPS also allows dynamic
printer detection and grouping." The CUPS Printing System | Linux Journal
