Being a translator still kind of forces me onto Windows because of the lack of quality GUI OCR tools in the Linux ecosystem. (The commercial ABBYY engine does exist and is really not that expensive, but I need manual area selection and categorization, heuristics still suck big time.) That may change in the (not so distant) future but still is the case.
