Possibly because the author, Ed Hamrick, has more incentive than
people writing free software? He has always been extremely good
responding to my questions and requests regarding VueScan which I
got originally for my Mac Mini when HP stopped supporting my old
FWIW, I have been extremely disappointed with HP's driver
support, particularly for older scanners. I had purchased a new
ScanJet 5590 in April 2009 which worked fine with VueScan on top
of HP's low-end drivers on my PPC Mac Mini running Leopard. When
I got a new Macbook Pro in August 2009 running Snow Leopard, HP
didn't have drivers for it, and their older drivers didn't work.
Their web site said they would have Snow Leopard drivers in
September or October of 2009, but they didn't come out until
sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2010.
For that reason, I will be looking at other hardware vendors the
next time I'm in the market for a scanner.
