    Best way to buy a webcam is to make sure it is UVC complient. You can't go wrong with a UVC complient webcam.

    Where do you live? If here in the U.S. then you should try bestbuy, believe it or not every time I go to bestbuy and go through there electronics I always find at least one product that list to be compatible with linux on the system requirements on the box.
