Ursprünglich nicht, da kommt es aus der Linux-Welt.
Michael Sweet, who owned Easy Software Products, started developing
CUPS in 1997. The first public betas appeared in 1999. The original
design of CUPS used the LPD protocol, but due to limitations in LPD
and vendor incompatibilities, the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)
was chosen instead. CUPS was quickly adopted as the default printing
system for several Linux distributions, including Red Hat Linux.
In March 2002, Apple Inc. adopted CUPS as the printing system for
Mac OS X 10.2. In February 2007, Apple Inc. hired chief developer
Michael Sweet and purchased the CUPS source code.
