Multimedia, AV My husband and I are thinking of buying the Canon Optura Xi camcorder soon (in our opinion, the best DV camera at this range). Because I run so many OSes I always have 'embedded' in me this "thing" to only buy supported hardware by the major OSes. I am sure Optura's DV part will work fine with some Linux tools, but then what? How do I easily edit my... masterpiece and burn DVDs or VCDs via an integrated solution and send them to our families in Greece and France?

Hey Eugenia,

This is slightly away from topic, but if you're willing to spend a bit more ($700), you can get a Canon GL2.

Really nice camera. The picture quality is going to be about 20 times better on that one than the one you have picked out, due to it having 3 CCDs. The next step up is an XL1, though that is a little out of your (and most of ours) price range.

Just my $.02
