Mac is too easy

Occasionally I wonder why I bought a Mac when we have always been PC users. I love my Mac, but there are times when I can't figure out how to perform a simple task. The thought crosses my mind that it would have been easier to just stick with a PC. I hate to admit it, but I spent the last 2 days trying out different drivers for the Multifunctional Color Samsung CLX-3170 FW network printer. After installing the driver that came with the computer, going to the Samsung site and downloading their driver for Mac, troubleshooting, and checking online blogs, I found the solution.

One of the blogs led me to the Mac HD Library folder that contained a printer folder. To my amazement, there was a folder for Samsung. I installed the series CLX-3170 driver. It asked for the network location which I supplied. It took less than 2 minutes and my printer worked! I should just remember that there is usually a very simple solution with the Mac. It's just too easy.
