If it's a scanner/printer combo, even better, as it may replace my aging
Epson Stylus Photo 780 which every now and then throws a paper jam or

will be shared by a few systems running Linux and Windows.
So, can you recommend anything that's currently in the stores that

can tweak the drivers on the server if need be, but I don't want any
paper jams or things like that.
I've found a few HP combos recently that were on sale at Office Depot
for about $150 but they were awefully old and looked like discontinued
models. I don't want anything like that, I want to be able to purchase
cartridges for a few years down the road.
