Thanks for the info. I am aware of the purpose/reason people are recommending it. The reason I asked my question is my own OCD need to standardize, i.e. If I can use a program I like in a multi-OS environment I see that as a serious plus. You learn one program well and use it across Win9x, 2K, XP, 7, OS X, and even Linux.... I am guessing VueScan is limited to 32bit and above OSes but I could be wrong. I wonder if there were ever any TWAIN drivers for Win 3.x.....
