I currently shoot with an Olympus E-30. All images are saved as RAW+JPEG. My post-processing tools are mostly Linux-based open-source (rawtherapee, enfuse, krita and/or gimp, kflickr, exiftool). I frequently start up Photoshop CS4 via WINE. I no longer use Photoshop and have switched to krita and/or gimp for image editing.

I used to shoot with the Olympus E-510.
Before the E-510 it was a Canon S3 IS.
Before that it was a Konica Minolta/DiMAGE Z2.
My first foray into digital photography was with a P&S Olympus Camedia D-550 3MP.
Stopped shooting with my venerable Olympus OM-2 in 2003. However, I still use my legacy OM lens on the E-30.

BTW, I write code for a living, not that it makes me a better photographer.
