Luminous Landscape famously stated way back in 2001,
"Prints that I can make from [Canon] D30 images are better than the
prints that I can make from 35mm film. Period."
<http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/d30/d30_vs_film.shtml>

Apology in order? ;)

We're now well past the point where better compact digital cameras
surpass the D30, making bashing of image quality by dSLR fans absurd.

This idiot seems to be preoccupied with printers. It has been my general
observation that if a printer works with MAC it will most likely work
with Linux - I've yet to see an exception.

Yes, but don't need one here. His numbers (which I don't necessarily
believe anyway) show Linux and MAC with 113 million vs MS at 1.087
billion. So, MAC plus Linux (those NOT able to use a winprinter) would
seem to come to 10.395584% - I guess I was fairly close.

So you assume I'm talking about you?
It was a completely general statement.
