It is the driver. Windows printer machine drivers are superior improved and more frequently than not have more choices. I have comprised the same issue by my HP LaserJet. It be capable to do the complete sorts of things in Windows and still when using it in Linux Ubuntu, other than so limited by OS X. Similar to by my Canon all in one. I was expecting that was not the case in view of the fact that in most aspects the drivers do cope with the features of the Windows, other than not being capable to print in B&W for routine files is an irritation.
