Economy Size Geek - Adventures in Scanning

Has scanning under Linux improved?

It was a little disappointing that I couldn't get the buttons on the scanner to work, but that ended up being the only roadblock in the whole process. The main lesson is to get the driver for your scanner, then worry about the rest. Scanning under Linux has improved a lot since I last played with it, and I'm really excited to take something off the list of things I have to do on another operating system.
