Huh. I was about to write and say that it's worked fine for me in both 
Windows and Linux, but at this point that'd be lying. I've reinstalled 
Windows recently, and the newest PD installer from sourceforge. Now 
using the webcam crashes PD. Using windows XP Pro. Looks like I need to 
downgrade GEM :-(

However, I am positive it works fine in Linux w/ kernel 2.6.6 and the 
latest pwc and pwcx. There's a small problem with a glitch if the stream 
gets closed. If this happens, open a second terminal, modprobe pwcx out, 
modprobe pwc out, then modprobe them both back in, pwc first then pwcx 
and the glitch is gone. Very obnoxious. Sometimes if PD crashes the 
camera doesn't get closed and the next time I try to open it, with any 
program, the device is busy and can't open.

So I guess what I'm trying to say, is that I was about to say it works 
fine, but in reality it hardly works, and not at all well at that.
