Having finally given up on getting a decent scanner working under Linux (yeah, I know. Blah, blah, blah. Flames will be gleefully /dev/null’ed) I got a Canon scanner, which I’m usng on my Win98 machine.
The thing that struck me as really cool about this scanner is that it has no power supply. It is entirely powered by the USB port. Not being much of a hardware person, I guess I was unaware that this was possible.
Anyways, using it for my wine labels
