    Hi all,

    The security community might be (only) slightly spartan when it comes to multimedia fizz, but still, you might be interested to see what web camera support you should expect if you pop a Linux live CD into a tray.

    Now, all the testing done was in live CD, zero command line, no tweaking and installations or anything - just pure, instant out-of-the-box support.

    I've also updated the Fedora and Ubuntu articles, if you're interested.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Cheers,
    Mrk
