I bought an HP all-in-one because it appeared that I could get it
working
in Linux, but when I started trying to connect it, it started getting
messy 
and I was in a big hurry so when I found out that it would do faxing and

stuff stand alone I just started using it that way.  Then of course
being 
the great procrastinator that I am, it is still sitting there
disconnected.

But what I wanted to comment on is that the scanner part is less useful
than a flatbed scanner.  There has been several times that I have had
to fire up the flatbed scanner to scan odd sized documents.  And then
trying to scan something out of a book or magazine is more difficult on 
the all-in-one too.
