What will you support: iPrint Appliance or iPrint OES

Dear sirs,
I would like to ask you what will you support - preffere for future?
Will it be iPrint Appliance or iPrint OES?
Will you develop-support both versions in future?
Are they same versions?
Is the difference just in possibility to print from mobile devices in iPrint Appliance?
Thank you in advance.

Both, they serve different markets so you can pick which works best for
your environment. The appliance brings some of the goodness of iPrint
to even Microsoft only environments

That is what all the road maps I've seen point to.

Mostly. While they have a common codebase, there is a differing
integration point so we have a situation where there will be feature
leapfrogging where the newest 'must have' features will be in one
before the other. As the appliance is rather stand alone, I think it
will tend to get the new stuff first (gamma testing time) before the
OES integration testing is complete.

I think need to be careful on that. I have been told we will never see
airprint available in OES-iprint. I have always thought that was a shame
myself.

As I said 'mostly'. Yes that feature is a shame to be only on the
appliance, had I haven't heard a reason as to why that is the case.
