Go with a laser. Most any HP laser will be supported by Linux and are
good-quality. The "L"-series are cheap but not terribly fast and
don't hold a lot of paper. Get one with PostScript if you can, the
"MP" series are smallish but have PostScript and are a good buy.

Even the "L"-series LaserJets will be faster than most ink jets.
Incidentally, the term is "ink jet", not "bubblejet"; the latter is a
trademark of Cannon, I believe.
