I suggest if you make any kind of living doing this scanning and OCR, you stick with what works. I'm not so familiar with the scanning tools available for Linux, either. You might try searching google. I think there may be a few scanner related projects on sourceforge.
: I'd like to walk into a showroom and see Linux running on a PC. (I've only seen command-line Linux on old 386's.) Where can I do this in Rogue Valley? I'd prefer not to wait until the Nov meeting.
: Although I have lots of unix experience from the 80's, I've been using Macs for the past 10 years. I do a lot of flat-bed scanning and OCR work. I know I can do this under Linux, but I don't know what my user experience would be like. I prefer to point and click to command line for most operations.
: Thanks for any advice you can offer.
