OK, this is a bit OT but there's a lot of video expertise here so I 
figured I'd ask.

I'm looking for an inexpensive, handheld digital camcorder, something I 
can give to a child to make movies with.  My kids are pretty good about 
not breaking stuff, but still, I don't want them playing with my $600 

No tapes, no moving parts, and ideally records AVIs to an SD card, small 
enough for a child to handle easily.  Of course it must record to a 
non-proprietary format.

Any suggestions?

Linux stuff has made big progress over the competition. When things sit and don't start right away, we have a watch, and those poor guys have to settle for an hourglass.
