OS/2 and hardware... For more than a decade, OS/2 has been misjudged to have very limited hardware support. But in fact, if you dig some further, you'll notice that OS/2 Warp and eComStation offer extreme broad hardware support. Not so long ago, there was no support for USB scanners or whatsoever; only SCSI models were supported. Not only are SCSI scanners a lot more expensive, but newer scanners are shipped with a USB interface only, and the parallel port interface has disappeared.
With TAME/2, the time is about to change. It offers an easy-to-use GUI to use your USB and SCSI scanners, and it is still being developed, in contrast to the older (though also very performant) drivers and scanning utilities.

Issues remain with a HP scanner that uses the Avision backend due to (at this stage) unsupported IRQ Transfer mode.
To help support continued development of Sane (and other projects - see http://smedley.info/os2ports.html) on OS/2, Sane backends package contains only the files updated in \sane\lib\* and is useful to update an earlier release where the documentation and executables have not changed.
