Apparently, Vista has some kind of native support for older printers, and
the HP 1000 series is accredited in some way..
Hardware manufacturers have a history of dumping old stuff when a new OS
appears by way of not producing drivers

offer better quality and faster output, while being way more economical with
ink delivery.. personally, I would get a new printer..
