Cannon's Linux support seems to have improved - they were very bad a few 
years ago.  My brother needed something scanned urgently on his Canon 
PIXMA MP-270 inkjet printer/scanner but had been too busy to 
download/install the scanner driver for Windows.  I offered to try with 
my Ubuntu 11.10 laptop which I had on me.  It proved to be plug-and-play 
- he was pretty impressed!

Brother also offers good support - I've had a multifunction Brother 
MFC-7420 for a few years and configuration just gets easier with each 
Ubuntu upgrade.
