I had an MFC-8720 (or rather, my roommate had it and I administered it) that 
worked fine for Linux printing.  I didn't try any of the other functions.

But I will say this: every Brother laser printer that I've used has had 
absolutely horrible raster graphics output.  They do really well for text and 
vector graphics, but everything else is severely pixelated and badly 
dithered.  Printouts from Google Maps are almost unreadable.

If you need graphics output, go with the HP.
