On the three occasions in the last four years I have purchased a 
camera from a high street store I made a show of taking along a laptop 
and ran from a live CD in the store and asked first to see if it was 
recognised. On one occasion, since I obviously had a very honest face 
(and a credit card handy) the store manager let me run a shop display 
machine with a live usb sick with Ubuntu to test the camera. I used 
canon cameras, and they were recognised although I think a particular 
transfer mode had to be chosen. In one case it was not easily 
recognised - maybe the shop guy did not know which menu to use, anyway 
I actually did not buy that canon model for that reason, I bought a 
slightly earlier model, which did work for me ok. I thought it was 
worth it to get information and to make a point....

However, back at the ranch, I never conect the camera at all, I always 
simply remove the SD cards and use a card reader. Much faster and 
simpler too. :-)
