Much to my surprise the Foscam FI9821P that I recently purchased requires a plugin of some kind so it only works on Windows and Macs. You can't even log into it for configuration without the plugin. I managed to work around it with an Android app but it's not what I would prefer.
The previous model (FI9821W V2) required no plugin and worked fine without one.
Not sure where my next purchase will come from but it certainly won't be a Foscam unless they change things.

My Mother (now in her late 80's) has been using Linux and KDE since I gave her a computer back in the 90's. I had it dual boot for a while but finally gave that up when I spent far to much time fighting windows. By then she was comfortable with Linux and only needed one windows program that I was able to run under Wine.
Other family members have accounts on the same machine so they have net access when visiting ( less of an issue now with tablets and laptops) and I handle the admin details. I'll be visiting her this weekend and will probably spend less than an hour updating and checking logs. My last visit to do this was Christmas.
It's a no-brainer.

and you can drift to sleep with music playing without disturbing whoever is trying to sleep next to you."
No one here has someone sleeping next to them.
Crank those suckers up to 11.
