Ey, Joe, calm down. Thats not the way it is. Ok, it looks a lot
alike on the first moment, but there is more out there. Most
manufacturers include at least a Mac conectivity and often there
are second party offers for other systems.

To get this clear, I'm not talking about sub 150 USD cameras
like Mustek & Co (But even here some solutions are available).

For example, I'm using right now an Olympus Camedia 810L,
a USD 700 value, last year when I got it. Olympus is shiping
a CD with Win (3.x/9x/NT) and Mac soft, so most users are
already able to use it. Then there is for example a dealer
who even includes an Atari ST (!) connection software. Oters
are supplying Amiga versions - and even for the Unix (Linux)
Freaks there is support - so wheres the problem ?

I'm quite satisfies - just the resolution ... 2000 x someting
would be desirable...
