    I have a Epson WorkForce 850, I used my Windows PC with it but I am curious wether PowerPC will work?

    I'm pretty sure the drivers are Windows only, and if they are Mac then its probably the Intel version.

    Are you sure that's not an XP-850?

    I'm finding WorkForce 840 and 845 drivers on Epson's site (for Mac) and Gutenprint (CUPS printing for OS X on unsupported Windows printers) has drivers for a WorkForce 640. Epson's site is not listing a WorkForce 840.

    WorkForce 845 actually, my bad.

    Actually, surprisingly, they did have drivers on the website.:)
