I really only recommend taking a look on it before you buy some random piece 
in a store ... :-))) ! For example especially choosing a well supported 
device in order to support the companies that work together with the Open 
Source community.

Hint: Avsion is pretty open to SPEC inquiried and there is an excellent SANE

Yeah, the usual Epson binary only junk.

Btw. You never answered our companies inquiries about a PowerPC Linux binary 
for the Epson-ALC1100-filter. I guess that is not on your companies fun-to-do 
list? Maybe open-source this trivial piece of raster converter ?
