Hi to all

 I am an IT manager living in Brasil, and I have some customers from Graphics area, and I thought I was the only one to have this kind of problem !!

3 of them have a high-end Agfa scanner ...

2 of them with combo Cannon-Fiery ...

Plus several with Screen or Umax flat-bed scanners, not so high-end, but still MUCH bedder image quality then almost all up to date scanners ...

Some of this customers already have their servers virtualized, so likely not a big problem ...

I do not have any issue with netatalk under KVM, I do not use XEN .

Just adding some info to this thread, which is very interesting to me ...


Thanks a lot to all developers ...

Indeed there are some machines out there that don't run OSX - we have
two here (as well as several OSX).

One is used with SCSI DAT drives for archiving and retrieving date
from a tape archive started in 1995 and still doing its job perfectly.

The other is a bit younger (1998!) and is connected to a £30,000
(yes, that's what it cost!) drum scanner, which we still use for
scanning transparencies and flexible artwork. Its scan quality is far
better than any other that we have used, particularly if you oil-
moount the transparencies. (Oh, and it is a SCSI as well. My
experience is that OSX does not play nicely with SCSI.)

So, for some machines there is no point in changing, for others there
is no possibility to change.
