Heyhey everybody!

I'm looking at investing in a scanner so I can digitise my university notes
this coming academic year. I was wondering if anyone has a scanner they can
recommend that works well with Ubuntu? Ideally it would be a tray-fed
scanner, so I can put in several sheets at a time and just hit a nice big
'GO' button, and it would scan it all into a single PDF. Bonus points if it
can scan both sides of the paper in one go.

Also, has anyone tried any available OCR software for Ubuntu? It'd be great
if I could scan in my notes into text, which would make them all searchable!
