I LOVE my Brother all-in-one. Printing, sending, and receiving FAXes. Never tried to get scanning to work
in my Linux-only enviroment.
It took only a few minutes to get working with CentOS about 7-10 years ago. Maybe 1 page in 5000-10,000
jam, using quality paper of course. They promised Linux compatibility and were right.
This was after I had returned the new HP printer that lied when they claimed Linux compatibility
and *I* could not get working after about 6 hours of wasted time compiling stupid drivers that didn't
load or work.
(My last HP laptop supplied by a client also was junk). HP now is on my "Never buy" list. Buyer beware.
