True, although I never connect the camera directly to the computer
anyway. I find it's much easier to use a card reader than to futz
around with USB cables every time I need to transfer photos. And I
don't use the bundled software either, so I don't even know what that
side of things is really like.
Linux support seems tough to come by. Are Nikon, Olympus, or Sony any
better? Apart from implementing USB mass storage, is there any other
compatibility issue? I'd be interested to hear who's really doing
well, and maybe try to pass the word along.
I use almost nothing but Photoshop, and I haven't found anything
comparable in the FOSS world. So realistically, Linux can't be the
core of my photo workflow. That might be the "root cause" of a lack
of Linux support from the rest of the industry.
