Thanks for your good news :-)
I'm not in a network: I will dedicate an old linux pc to gt-2500.

Do you know what append if there are no pages in the ADF and I use the 
ADF argument?

Ok, I didn't know it

I care about one single sheet job (with or without ADF); here it is the 
most common case.
Our needs are:
-  A4 planed (ADF probably will be used, but it is not necessary)
- very fast B/W single shoot scan in medium/low quality (300dpi?) for 
office documents
- Sane compatibility.

I think/hope GT-2500 can work fine for us :-) Other scanners don't give 
us these certainties (productors sites informations are so poor..)
