Networking easier if both computers have Ubuntu?
We installed Ubuntu on my computer yesterday. My son still has WinXP and he had the computers networked so he was able to use my printer. This is our first experience with Linux.
Today, it won't work. We've checked the settings and we can't see any reason why it shouldn't work.
He suspects that if he installs Ubuntu on his computer so they're both running Linux, it will be a lot easier. We never had a problem when both computers had WinXP.
Would it be easier with both computers on the same OS, or is that just wishful thinking on his part?
