The interface might be a little pricey. Driver not so much, if
Windows still has a generic, "copy file.txt PRN:" style text-only
On a slightly-more-advanced note, I still have a IBM Proprinter II
laying around, and a couple unused ribbons for it. Windows has
shipped with a driver for that one since the Win 3.1 days.
