After 13 years of working well - the last years by using a canned Windows XP - my scanner finally died.

I am sad, especially as nowadays scanners don't seem to be a product for consumers anymore. Of course, you get tons of cheap multi-function-all-purpose-printer-scanner-thingies but the number of slim flatbed scanners is countable.

my bet is: they won't be around for as long as my old one was. But who nows, maybe paper will be obsolete soon, so that I don't have to scan 🤔 justkiddin
