Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "One of the often cited reasons for not switching away from MS Windows is it's breadth of commodity hardware support. The argument often goes something like this: 'Since Windows supports all the hardware I have why would I want to risk it not working under Linux? It's better to continue to use what I know will work.' While that may be true in and of itself, I'm finding this argument to involve a limited outlook."

Thanks for the tip on the printer!

As for the scanner, Lexmark does indeed offer a Linux driver development kit. However, I am not a programmer, and from what I've read the DDK is far from complete. I'll just continue to boot back into Windows for that device until I can find a better arrangement.
