Digital Camers WRT: Smart Media vs. CF media

I will be purchasing a new Digital Camera before this summer rolls around. 
While I have not decided on any one brand, friends have recommended both Olympus, which 
uses Smart Media, and HP Photosmart which uses compact flash. I have decided against Sony, 
although it uses diskettes. 

I am leaning toward CF because my IPaQ has a CF sleeve, not that it makes much of a 
difference. My laptop runs Linux, and I will be taking that with me, so I do want to be able to at 
least look at and possibly download the pictures onto the laptop. 

So, one question is, how compatable are these cameras with Linux when downloading via USB?
