Assinine Software you Have no Choice but to Install
A USB device is suppose to connect intelligently to your computer without any hassel. Not printers. If the even come with a USB cord (some printers actually make you buy this separately), you inevitable have to install an entire CD worth of god awful software which clugs up your machine to no end. Desktop icons, system try icons, strange dialogue boxes that always try to sell you more ink. Default settings that use as much ink as possible, and worse, if you happen to lose the idoitic CD, then it's an unreal process to find the right drivers online and get it working. Argh.

I traveled all winter using my Mac on a slew of different printers. All of them were plug and play as long as I had a web connection. It was a brilliant and pleasurable (not to mention practical) Macintosh good time.
