LXer: Check scanners add Linux support

Published at LXer:

A vendor of digital check scanners has updated its closed Linux drivers, releasing drivers for recent versions of Red Hat and Ubuntu. Digital Check can also supply custom drivers for device makers and OEMs, it says. Check scanners emerged after events on Sept. 11, 2001 grounded all commercial airplane flights in the U.S. for a week, explained Digital Check's VP of product management, Bruce Rennecker. "All checks in the U.S. stopped moving. The banking system had shut down. The Fed immediately notified banks not to worry, and to keep operating until they got trucks lined up. But that experience incented the government to stop the archaic practice of moving paper physically.
