An obsolete scanner found its way into our home, an HP scanjet 3970. Connect scanner to (Ubuntu) laptop, start xsane, searching for devices, found an hp scanjet 3970, ready to scan. Where is the hardcore hacking nowadays! I know, lots of other stuff to hack left, especially when you want things to look different than what the designers/packagers thought would be great (I want my fvwm2). Ok, I will admit I did do a search for 'linux hp scanjet 3970' before it got taken home. But this says something about how friendly modern open source software can be.
