It appears that there is no Windows 10 driver for the CanoScan LiDE 25, possibly no Windows 8 driver either.
The Windows 7 driver and CanoScan software I have used for years will not work with Windows 10.
Why is there no Windows 10 driver? I think it would take very little work to code one.
Is it that Canon would prefer taking a chance that people will buy a Windows 10 compatible replacement scanner from them, and not another brand?
Has anyone at Canon evaluated costs and benefits for abandoning driver support for customers that have switched from Windows 7 to a later Windows version?
Does it bother anyone at Canon that perfectly good hardware may be sent to landfills, loyal customers will be lost, etc.?

Canon support has already told me I'm SOL. The best they offered is a few dollars' discount on another scanner.
