Hey there Clug,
So I'd like a really, really nice webcam that works well on linux. I've 
heard that the Apple iSight is the bees knees but they don't seem to 
make it anymore. So I thought I'd ask, how does one go about selecting a 
webcam (or more generally, any new funky hardware) so that it will work 
with linux?
Mapping drivers from the kernel to actual models you can buy seems 
somewhat difficult. I have some sort of rubbishy logitec quickam 
$something that doesn't work that I bought a few years ago that doesn't 
work to prove it (or at least prove my general inadequacy and 
ignornace). Any thoughts?
