But surely, if I only had one printing system, installing the software on that one system would be a sensible thing to do. If that doesn't have a negative effect on the performance of that system, why would installing the software say, three times, on three independant printing systems affect the performance of each system?

The single database scheme may not work in all cases anyway. They may have remote sites connected via low-bandwidth links, there may be departmental politics issues where one department isn't permitted to see stats from another department etc, etc.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
