Probably my wife's, because it has the biggest HD. If it doesn't work on CentOS 5.2, we will need to use M$ Windows. Hopefully, it will work on Linux. :-) CentOS 5 is based on FC6, but there must be something included in Fedora that isn't in CentOS? Simple editing is probably what we will be doing here. We got an opportunity to buy a new camcorder this afternoon and will buy it tomorrow. It was on display and we have a chance to buy it, for about 70% less.
