I'm still enjoying using our somewhat aging Kodak EasyShare DX7440. With
Ubuntu (currently at 10.04 LTS) I am able to mount the SD card as a
drive via a USB cable to the camera. I move image files using Nautilus.
However having gained a strong preference for FOSS, I will certainly
include a check for Linux friendliness prior to any and every future
purchase of a camera or other PC peripheral.
Regarding Kodak, I do not see them as cooperating - but rather as living
in their own bubble.
