I’m always amazed when I hear an Open Enterprise Server customer hasn’t deployed iPrint in their enterprise.  First of all, it’s a free entitlement for being current with your Open Enterprise Server maintenance.  What’s not to like about free?  And more importantly, it’s incredibly easy to use and saves lots of time for both end-users …
