Faxing in Ubuntu

It seems hard to believe, but fax-machines have been around for over a century, and the current digital fax technology stems from the 1980s. Back in the days, for most people faxing a document was the only fast alternative to sending it by normal (as in non-electronic) mail. These days, as multi-function printers and copiers with scanning-capability are becoming more widespread, fax-machines are slowly obsoleted by the ability to easily scan documents as PDF and send them over e-mail. Nonetheless, every now and then someone asks me if I can send or receive something by fax.
