Epson printers are nice for photos, we have an Epson
Photo printer at home (model number eludes me off
hand, might be 910 something), wasn't too expensive I
don't think and the replacement cartridges are cheaper
than HP, but I dunno about Linux support, it's my
dad's. HP are pretty much guaranteed to work though as
Bruce Perens was their Linux guy for some time, they
are reliable and certain to be good quality. It's up
to you really.

About 18 months on, I'm still waiting to get an ATI
driver working (took a year to get one in the first
place), so I'd say nVidia on that score as the support
and drivers are much better. I've been VESA VGA driver
since I got it and it cost me £130 or for the
priveledge of having bog standard VGA
