Printer With Most Operating System Plug-and-Play Compatibility [closed]

A friend is looking for a printer which can be plugged directly into a Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X (Windows 98 would be nice, too, but not holding my breath) machine and start working without the need for driver installations (basically, the printer is going to be situated in rented accommodation and any installation disks are bound to go missing).

Well, one less than optimal solution is to get something that's Postscript enabled and have instructions that can be provided for each OS on how to use the generic Postscript driver. Might be able to do the same (cheaper) with PCL5 printers if you can make OS X work right with them (I don't know, I only ever use Postscript from Mac).
