OK, I'm struggling with how to respond to Dave McGuire's response, in
this otherwise uneventful discussion thread, on the NeXT laser printer
and how or if it is related in some ways or not, to other laser printers
of the era.
I've decided, to not say too much, and to not say it at length. First,
as a personal matter, I'm sorry if Dave McGuire took my post in some
kind of personal way, I apologize to him. I had no idea, that sort of
personal response from him was at stake, regarding some set of laser
printers, or my choice of words.
The technical issues and histories about these printers, the subject of
the discussion thread, are sufficiently noted for more information to be
found by anyone interested, for their purposes. And, in looking at posts
after Dave's, I *strongly* suggest reading more about what "a Canon SX
print engine" means. It does not mean a ready-to-go printer, it means
something as Dave discusses. The printers in discussion are not
identical, and again homework can be done to determine their differences
and where they share components in common - that being my point.
Otherwise, I don't know about NeXT machines and printers, so I can't add
further to that discussion.
But Dave brings up a number of other things, which I don't believe are
limited to this particular thread and subject. I see he feels strongly
about them. But for many reasons including good-will discussion, I will
not post responses to those things.
