Hapless HP OfficeJet users waiting for Windows 2000 drivers have now had the rug pulled from under them again. Drivers for the older 500, 600 and 700 series all-in-one products had been promised drivers between July 10th and 24th, but now the HP website shows no firm delivery date at all, instead promising a beta driver will be made available 'as soon as possible'.

Here's what the HP site has to say:

Hello OfficeJet users,
The HP All-In-One Product division had hoped to post the Windows 2000 beta software for several products starting today July 10th for the OfficeJet 700. Unfortunately, that date will slip due to several technical issues surrounding the OfficeJet 500/600/700 software architecture.

HP is not yet satisfied with the technical quality of the OfficeJet Windows 2000 software at this point. As soon as a viable beta candidate is available, it will be posted in this space, so continue to check back to this website for more details.

Sorry HP, this simply isn't good enough - are you a professional IT company or a bunch of fumbling amateurs?

Time to make your minds up. ®
