There is at least one case in which Textures can't be used: printing to 
a Rendezvous printer. At home I have a DeskJet connected to the USB 
port of an Airport Extreme base station, it can't be seen in Classic. 
The Blue Sky site mentions that to circumvent this you may print from 
Textures to a PS file and then open this file and print it from 
Preview; this works, but seems to go against the Textures philosophy of 
an integrated Mac interface to TeX.

Similarly at work all printers are managed by a CUPS server; for the 
moment I'm still printing to them via AppleTalk, but it may be that at 
some point, due to constraints set up by the sysadmin, I'll have to use 
the CUPS server as well, and I'm not sure the Classic Selector can be 
used to see the connected printers.
