thanks for that
But at present I'm more interested in things like my printers - I have 3 , all relatively elderly , but they work - for ordinary printing anyway - an HP PSC 1410 [ and also its Deskjet equivalent , which was my husband's ] and a Canon Pixma IP 1600 .
IIRC HP were very slow bringing out updated Drivers for their printers and I'm not techie enough to be able to go and set up generic stuff - I need to wait for the manufacturers updates.
I do use Mobile Me , so it looks as if I'll be forced to Lion at some point
