Windows 7: Native AIO Printer Support

Native AIO Printer Support

Has anyone found a All-In-One (AIO) printer/scanner/copier that just works when plugged in under Windows 7? I mean, you take the thing out of the box, connect the power cord and usb and Windows 7 either has the drivers for it built in or it gets them automatically from Windows update. I want a printer whose manufacturer respects my platform of choice by playing by it's rules and I'm voting with my dollars for that capability. I'm sick of these proprietary drivers alway hassling you to buy7 their ink and use their photo service and cluttering up my interface. I want something that plugs in a works as advertised without needing a bunch of extra crap installed.

The Epson 6600 does but is too old to be available now. Plug and Play, all functions. Might want to take a look at their current release
