brucehinrichs those comments were uncalled for and its more than likely the OP lost his job due to personality difference with new boss rather than his skills which you berate.

As for CUPS: I'll post this elsewhere too, but we have no end of problems with CUPS on variants of Linux.
Printer settings are only sticky when sent in Control Panel. For example, if draft is set in Control Panel/Printers, and photo is set in final print dialog, actual print is in draft, not photo. This is repeatable and does not matter what the originating software is eg Shotwell Open Office and so on.
We have confirmed it with various printers using CUPS and various computers and variants of Linux eg Mint, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Puppy, Pinguy.
Various folks have reported this wrongly thinking is fault with Open Office/Libre Office, or their software which its not - comes down to CUPS.
Cheers,
Alistair.

Your comments are insulting because they have no basis. They are uncivil and uncalled for. It's more than likely the OP provided an accurate assessment of the situation. From the facts and history available, it's more than likely the OP understands the difference between what a professional situation requires versus the opportunity for frankness a forum like this provides. In a professional situation, you can't tell someone they're full of crap when they're married to an idea to the detriment of practicalities. Here, however, I can tell you you're full of crap when you're full of crap and your love of an operating system or methodology seduces you into making your insulting characterizations at the expense of the facts sitting in front of your face.

An interesting reply; I actually empathised with you as had a similar experience; there was a bunch of redundancies at our lab, and boss fired me as well; which let me to self-employment.

There was no intention of uncivility so I apologise if thats how it came across. One of the other posters had commented about your lack of job skills which I did not agree with as he has no idea of your skills.
Anyway, I hope you fell into a reasonable alternative job.
Cheers,
Al.
